PRAYERS 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYER 

Almighty God, Our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make him known 
to all nations as their Saviour and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest. 
Who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy land. Amen. 

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special care for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer friendship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy kingdom through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



6 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the 
Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set for- 
ward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
we beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the 
sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with 
our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who are the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good deeds 
be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Can- 
vass, and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts 
for the sake of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

Oh Lord, without whom our labor is but lost; and with whom 
Thy little ones go forth as the mighty: We humbly beseech Thee 
to prosper all works in Thy Church undertaken according to Thy 

holy will, (especially the work of ) and 

grant to Thy laborers a pure intention, patient faith, sufficient suc- 
cess upon earth, and the blessedness of serving Thee in Heaven; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR VOLUNTEERS 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with such 
love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost 
parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all things 
which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 7 

NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Elessed Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross 
stretching forth Thy loving arms; grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee and be saved. Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men 
everywhere witn the love of God and of our fellowmen, that we 
may be worthy of world peace. This we pray in Jesus' name. 
Amen. 



FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the 
Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in 
His Name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support 
us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then 
let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally 
received and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

Lord, save these Thy servants. 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with Thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy 
holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life: 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



8 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report

humbly beseech Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen

ANALYSIS OF YEAR OF WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
OF DIOCESE 

1. Fiscal year of Diocese and branches runs Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 
because it must coincide with National Council fiscal year. 

2. Year of active study and action runs from 1st meeting in 
Fall (Sept.) to last meeting before Summer recess (June). 
Reason: It must conform to the plans and material sent out 
from National headquarters, and to the Diocesan Annual 
Meeting which must be held in the favorable weather of 
Spring. 

3. Summer is preparation period for activities to follow — it 
is the inactive first part of a new year of study and action. 

4. New officers should be elected at a branch meetng prior to 
Annual Diocesan Meeting. Reasons: (a) New officers are taken 
into consideration in the election of delegates to the Annual 
Meeting, (b) New officers' names can be given on report of 
the year's study and action for publishing in year book. 

5. New officers should be installed at last meeting berfore Summer 
recess (June meeeting). A few branches meet during Summer. 
Their officers should also be installed at end of June meeting. 



10 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report 

6. Officers installed at June meeting spend Summer preparing for 
coming year of activity. Program of Christian Education 
should be prepared during this time. 

7. New president presides at 1st Fall meeting (Sept.). For 
branches meeting during Summer she presides at July meeting. 

8. Report blanks are sent out to branches in March Diocesan 
president's letter. Reports cover period from previous July 1st 
to May 1st (as late in year as possible and yet in time for 
publishing in year book). Reports are mailed back to District 
Chairman and Diocesan President in May. List of recently 
elected officers sent in on report then becomes correct in year 
book for longest period of year possible. 

9. Year book is sent out in August, before if possible. 

10. New treasurer is actually installed in middle of fiscal year, 
along with other officers, but this is much easier for her than 
taking office in January when she would immediately have to 
set up new pledges and budget. 

11. Annual Diocesan Meeting is the middle of April. This conforms 
to date of Diocesan Convention of the Church, and to the 
Bishop's schedule. Year's reports are not available for Dio- 
cesan officers for Annual Meeting, but "reports" at this meet- 
ing could consist of plans for the future and a general picture 
of work.

THROUGH CHRISTIAN EDUCATION WE PREPARE 

TO BE WITNESSES 

Branch programs this year have given evidence of growth, by 
Auxiliary groups and individuals, in study and action that is real 
and vital. 

We will soon be engaged in planning for the 1948-1949 study 
and action. Our summer conferences will give much inspiration 
and practical help. Small planning groups and individuals will 
wish to take stock of objectives, weaknesses and failures in order 
that we may increase our efforts in worship, study and action 
during 1948 and '49 — the last year of the triennium. 

Let us now review just what we have been striving for and 
what we must continue to strive for. Is it not that through God's 
guidance we may be participators in the establishing of His King- 
dom here on earth? 

This is expressed in our Women's Auxiliary theme — Strength 
to Build — and is in the form of a prayer, "Give us, Oh God, the 
strength to build the city that has stood too long a dream." 

The Church has pointed out to us Christ's answer to that prayer 
— "Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Spirit is come upon 
you, and ye shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all 
Judea and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." 

If we consider the several phrases of Christ's answer we see 
that in the first two phrases He gives us assurance that we shall 
receive the strength to build for which we pray — "after that the 
Holy Spirit is come upon us." Is this not the imperative reason 
to study our Christian Faith? 

The next phrase, "And ye shall be witnesses unto me," tells us 
that when the Holy Spirit is come upon us we shall not only have 
strength but we shall be God's instruments, willing and eager wit- 
nesses, believers with knowledge and conviction, testifying in 
Christian living. 

The phrase "In Jerusalem," which was the loved and well-known 
city of the Jews, may be interpreted that our witnessing unto 
Christ begins within the Christian Home and Family. Shall we 
not therefore concern ourselves with this study? 

In the phrase, "And in all Judea and in Samaria," we are com- 
manded to witness as brothers in our social and economic relations 
beyond our limited, familiar home, and town into state, sections, 
nation, neighbor nations and on out into the world. This is the 
study of the Christian World. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 17 

The phrase, "And unto the uttermost part of the earth," brings 
to us the imperative to witness by sharing the word of God and 
Christ's way of life with all men, even unknown and remote 
peoples. This then is the study of the World Mission of the 
Christian Church. 

And so we know what we are striving for — the strength to build 
the city of God. We have Christ's assurances and commands for 
the way we shall obtain that city. Now let us look for a moment 
on what Woman's Auxiliary offers us as aids and opportunities 
in Christian growth. 

Woman's Auxiliary activities contain five essential elements to 
aid us in answering our prayer and to provide opportunites for 
action. These elements are: Worship, Study. Service, Gifts and 
Fellowship. 

The element of worship distinguishes our work from that of 
civic organizations concerned with creating a better world. Worship 
is placed first in the order, reminding lis that witnessing through 
service and gifts and fellowship needs as a basis the element of 
worship— the means through which the Holy Spirit may come 
upon us. 

It is significant that study is placed next to worship in the order. 
Study means to read, think, question, discuss, learn and come to 
conclusions and convictions so that we gain real knowledge and 
understanding which can be translated into true Christian wit- 
nessing in service, gifts and fellowship. 

A project or action, of course, may begin with any one of these 
elements but before it reaches its final conclusion the project needs 
to include the other elements. Let us not consider that action 
without study will ever be enough nor study without action will 
be enough. Above all let us remember that study and action must 
be based on true worship. 

May we then each one of us sincerely pray, "Give us, Oh God, 
the strength to build the city," and open our hearts and minds 
to the knowledge and love of God, and diligently study, that we 
may be witnesses unto Christ through true faith in His word, 
in our homes and in our world and in the mission of the Christian 
church.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 



66th ANNUAL MEETING — WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
Christ Church, Raleigh, April 14, 1948 

"Ye Shall Be Witnesses" — This command strikes a most solemn 
response from Christian hearts today. Simple acquiescence is not 
witnessing lor Christ in any generation, but certainly for us there 
are such grave questions to be faced in our world and in our 
personal lives that we know it is a time when Christians must 
stand and be counted. We are probably more blessed in our ma- 
terial surroundings than any group of women in the world today, 
and yet even for us it requires courage to speak for Christian 
principles among people who are amused or antagonistic. 

Our Woman's Auxiliary provides wonderful opportunities for 
witnessing to Christ; it disciplines us in ways of witnessing to Him. 
If only we will give our best talents, our eager imagination, our 
first allegiance among organizations to the Auxiliary then we will 
develop these opportunities beyond anything we have attained 
so far. Because the life of the Woman's Auxiliary is interwoven 
with and derived from the life of the Church, because it is depend- 
ent upon the life of the Church, we can avail ourselves of a 
strength and guidance in our work not readily accorded other, 
secular organizations. As members of the Church, the family of 
God, we know that only from a worshiping heart can come the 
eagerness to carry the Good News of the Gospel to others here 
at home and abroad. 

In our program for this meeting we will find constant reminders 
that the Christians of the Young Churches are witnessing to Christ 
among us with power and conviction. They are sending to us 
missionaries who make us realize our limited appreciation of the 
treasures they value above life. 

During this year one new branch of the Auxiliary has been 
formed, the Francis Joyner branch of All Saints Parish, Roanoke 
Rapids. In the coming year the formation of new branches should 
be a special objective of this Diocese. This would be one way of 
accepting our task as Auxiliary to the Church's program of Evan- 
gelism. We must realize that a woman who comes first to Auxiliary 
meetings may be brought into the Church by means of the Auxil- 
iary. This is the highest fulfillment of our purpose. At this date 
53 branches have made a total increase of $1003.50, in their 
pledges to the Diocesan budget of 1948. This is cause for rejoicing 
when we believe that it indicates an increased interest on the 
part of the members of these branches in the missionary program 
which the budget supports. 

There is no important fault to be found in the plan of organi- 
zation of the Woman's Auxiliary on the Diocesan level. Our work 
is as good and as bad as we who do it — and we are the general 
run of Episcopal sinners! We have put emphasis in the past two 
years on pruning and clarifying methods of doing our work. 
It now seems wise in the last year of the triennium for us to 
emphasize activities that are more obviously spiritual. However, 
if your branch still needs emphasis on clarifying methods of 
organization, by all means you should continue your efforts on 
these lines until efficient organization becomes automatic for you 



28 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report 

and may be forgotten in favor of other emphases. In the Diocese 
during the coming year we should stress the individual reading 
of the classics of Christian literature and the works of contem- 
porary writers who open our minds to the teachings of Christ 
through the doctrines of His Church. Plans are taking form to 
have in each District during the coming year a Quiet Day of 
Prayer and Meditation conducted by one of our clergy, at a time 
and place convenient to the members of the Auxiliary in that 
District. 

In the coming year our branches must have faith to launch 
out on bold ventures believing that God will bless our untiring 
efforts with sufficient success in the end. In these things we will 
be laying up for ourselves treasures "Where neither moth nor 
rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor 
steal."

REPORT OF UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

The United Thank Offering is not an appeal for Funds. The 
Offering grows as there is developed in people a sense of thank- 
fulness. The amount given is important to the individual members 
of the Church only in so far as it is an indication of the spiritual 
growth of people. We must keep ever before us, not statistics, 
but the growth in the hearts of women everywhere of a deep 
sense of thankfulnss to Almighty God. 

It is a habit of Americans to emphasize the Big — an undertaking 
is a success if it is Big. We think we have failed if statistics 
do not show an increase in Bigness and Numbers. The size of the 
United Thank Offering indicates success only as it indicates that 
more women are expressing a real sense of thankfulness. In 
evaluating our year's work we must read our statistics correctly. 
The United Thank Offering is for all the women of the Church. 
The Woman's Auxiliary usually comprises the most active women 
of a Parish. Yet it is evident from the reports sent in to me that 
even some of the members of the Auxiliary are not contributing 
to the United Thank Offering. The Offering provides a very defi- 
nite thing we can do to express our sense of thankfulness so that 
it can be used in the service of God. 

As Diocesan Custodian I wish to express thanks to all who have 
given loyal assistance. The efficiency of the Ingathering rests 
upon the interest and promptness in sending in reports, and the 
organization works smoothly only with the cooperation of the 
persons in key positions. A deadline has been set for each Ingath- 
ering, approximately three weeks after the Ingathering date so 
that any funds coming in after that date will be applied to the 
following Ingathering. A printed form is being prepared to facili- 
tate reports by District and Branch Custodians. These will be 
sent out in plenty of time before each Ingathering. 

Our Fall Ingathering amounted to $7,447.04 and the Spring 
Ingathering amounted to $7,445.18, making a total of $14,892.22. 
As you can see by the report given in the Year Book for last year 
we have given more dollars this year — let us pray that this stands 
for spiritual growth and let us during the coming year in United 
Thank Offering programs emphasize, as we should, the Spirit of 
Thankfulness. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Myrtle H. McCoy, 

U.T.O. Custodian.

REPORT OF SECRETARY OF CHRISTIAN 
SOCIAL RELATIONS 

This is my third and last report as Secretary of Christian Social 
Relations of the Diocese of North Carolina. At the outset, I want 
to say it is a privilege and a pleasure to have served with such 
a fine group of church women and I will take with me through 
life the inspiration I have received from my association with them. 

During the year, we have given to the Presiding Bishop's Fund 
for World Relief; sent Christmas kits to the Seamen's Church 
Institute; we have contributed to the Thompson Orphanage and 
done many things locally in our various branches. Our number 
one concern is still World Relief. We must continue to help our 
hungry and needy friends in Europe if we are to enjoy peace 
at home. 

In my 1947 report, I said that it was my sincere wish that we 
continue to support the National Council in whatever projects it 
approved. I want to again state that wish. The National Council 
is headquarters for all departments of our Church and it should 
be our duty and pleasure to support the projects which the Council 
proposes with all of our ability. Co-operation with the National 
Council during the past year was made somewhat difficult by the 
action of the Diocesan Council in deciding not to co-operate with 
and participate in one of the projects of the National Council. 
In my opnion this was a mistake on the part of the Diocesan 
Council. 

I fear that I have seen a lag in the activities of this department 
since the end of the war. To me Christian Social Relations is not 
something to be aroused by patriotic fervor brought about by 
war conditions. It is the heart and soul of religion itself and 
should be of a constant nature. It is born in our love for our fellow- 
man and bred in our desire to be of assistance to him. 

Money plays a large part in everything in life, including Chris- 
tian Social Relations, and much credit is due those local branches 
which have so splendidly met their aims from a financial stand- 
point; but Christian Social Relations means so much more than 
the raising of money for some particular project. It means a 
demonstration of that love for our fellowman in the thousand and 
one ways it can be demonstrated: a kind word here, a thoughtful 
gesture there. These mean, frequently, as much to some people 
as a ton of coal would mean to some others. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 47 

And so, to look forward, I would recommend to my successor 
that much emphasis be placed upon the non-monetary phase of 
Christian Social Relations; that an effort be made to instill into 
the Auxiliary that money, while necessary, is only a part of what 
is necessary, and that thoughtfulness and kindness and considera- 
tion for others is every bit as necessary. Our field is large. We 
can expand our work or we can limit it — we can do much or we 
can do little, depending entirely on 'how good a Christian we are. 

We hear much of the "New Look" these days. I sincerely hope 
we may acquire it spiritually; make our lives more meaningful, 
more tolerant and wear the "New Look" in our hearts. I believe 
it will be more becoming spiritually than stylishly. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mollie Carter Spruill, 
Secretary of Christian Social Relations. 

REPORT OF SECRETARY OF SUPPLY 

The purpose of the Supply Department of the Woman's Auxil- 
iary is to be a thoroughly organized channel through which every 
mission station, institution and hospital of our Church may receive 
the necessary clothing, linens, medical and hospital supplies to 
enable that station, institution or hospital to do its best work. 

Our part in this service has during the past year been more 
widespread throughout the branches of the diocese than in any 
previous year of my term of office, and for this I am deeply grate- 
ful as it shows an interest and enthusiasm far beyond the actual 
work. The opportunity to serve special fields will do a great deal 
toward creating interest in and appreciation of missions after a 
stimulating study of Evangelism. When carefully planned, Supply 
work may offer "the last woman in the last pew" her opportunity 
to share in the task of helping Church General Hospital, Wuchang, 
China, minister to the sick and homeless in that city. 'It is impos- 
sible for us to work for any mission without our hearts and 
prayers reaching out to meet the workers with every possible 
assistance. 

Our S apply Work is planned to be carried on throughout the 
entire year of study and action, and the fields of service are varied, 
so our special effort has been to keep the opportunities for service 
presented throughout the year's program, rather than to con- 
centrate on one program. 

With your pledges and gifts the diocesan Supply department 
has made the following contributions to work outside the diocese: 

I. A contribution of $75 to the Supply Secretaries Gift Fund. 
This fund makes possible gifts to retired missionary clergy- 
men and their widows and in addition, supplies a yearly gift 
of a suit of clothing to the layreaders and catechists and 
interpreters in Alaska and South Dakota, where the task of 
ministering to the people in their own language necessitates 
the employment of such helpers. Their stipend is very small 
and the gift of clothing enables them to be suitably clothed 
when they lead the services. This fund during the past year 
also suppiled our new missionary doctor at St. Timothys 
Hospital, Liberia, with household goods. 



48 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report 

II. 366 new articles cf linens and clothing has been sent to Buck 
Mountain Mission in Earlysville, Va. 

III. Our Redeemer Dispensary Center, Pineville, S. C, has re- 
ceived 628 new articles and 10,000 paper napkins. 

IV. Church General Hospital, Wuchang, China, has been sent 504 
new garments and articles, most of which have been made 
by several branches that have undertaken to help with sewing. 

In addition to this the amount of work and money spent for 
postage and express charges that has gone into the sending of 
used clothing to the above stations and the Philippine Islands is 
of such proportions I cannot make any attempt to report figures 
to you, but the letters of appreciation from the Missions and our 
National Supply Secretary testify to the splendid way you have 
responded to each and every request. 

It has been a very happy privilege to have been your diocesan 
Supply Secretary for the past three years. I am grateful for your 
confidence and cooperation and pray that in the future supply 
work will bring to more Auxiliary women a larger opportunity to 
share in the "building of the City" whose Maker and Founder is 
God, that their lives may be enriched by serving, and the missions 
and work of our Master blessed by receiving their joyful service. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Catharine M. Thomas, 

Secretary of Supply.

The Woman's Auxiliary 49 

REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE ON DIOCESAN COUNCIL 
AND CHAIRMAN OF YOUTH WORK 

As my report as your representative on the Bishop's Council, 
I shall say only that I continue to find the meetings most stimu- 
lating, interesting - , and informative. It is a rare privilege to attend 
them four times a year, and I'm sorry all of you cannot be present 
to hear for yourselves the discussions concerning the Church, both 
local and national. Mrs. Bourne, Mrs. Landon Hill, and I are the 
ladies on the council at present, and there are fourteen men, clergy 
and laymen. I trust ycu all read the N. C. Churchman and learn 
from its reports the results obtained and the decisions made at 
those meetings. Your President makes a report of the work of 
the Auxiliary, which is always enthusiastically received by the 
other members of the council. May I add that not the least of 
the pleasures attendant upon these all-day sessions is the delight- 
ful luncheon we enjoy as guests of Bishop and Mrs. Penick at 
Ravenscroft! 

I am happy to say that since my last report as Diocesan Chair- 
man of Youth Work, there have been several appointments of 
Youth chairmen in the districts. That, of course, means that the 
work will go more smoothly. The reports sent in to me have been 
most gratifying, and I'm sorry that lack of time prevents my 
going into detail about the many different ways our young people 
are working in and for the Church and for others, both here and 
abroad. Suffice it to say that a great many branches have young 
people : s organizations; and many others, some quite small numeri- 
cally, have stirred up interest among the young people without 
having an actual organization. That, too, is important. Get the 
Youth of the Church interested and working whether the group 
is organized or not. 

I'm sure you all know of the World Conference of Christian 
Youth which was held in Oslo, Norway, last summer. There were 
five delegates from our Church in this country, and four other 
Episcopalians representing other organizations. The study of this 
conference is one of the major aims of the 1947-48 program of the 
United Movement of the Church's Youth. The other majors are 
the continued stressing of the Rule of Life for individual Young 
People, the Epiphany Feast of Lights, the Corporate Communion 
for Young People April 18th (next Sunday — I hope our churches 
will be full of young people), and Youth Sunday and the Annual 
Offering in October. 

Let me urge you to start immediately — if you have not already 
done so — to foster interest and enthusiasm in our diocesan camps 
and conferences. It is my earnest hope that every branch will 
be represented by a young person at Vade Mecum or Camp Delaney 
this summer. The influence felt there may provide the foundation 
for a life devoted to religious work, and we are in dire need of 
trained workers. 

Locally, we sorely lack, and must have, adult supervision of and 
guidance for our youth. That is all-important; and I pray that 
by next year when I make my final report, I shall be able to say 



50 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report 

that every branch in the Diocese has a Chairman of Young Peo- 
ple's work. Will you help me make that come true? 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mabel S. Lucas, 
Chairman of Youth Work and Representative 
on Diocesan Council. 



REPORT OF MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

The time has come to evaluate what has been accomplished 
during the past year before we enter another year with its new 
goals and aims. 

As Diocesan Missionary Correspondent, I realized that more 
effective work could be accomplished if there was a duly appointed 
Missionary Correspondent in every Branch of the Auxiliary. To 
this end, I have written many letters. The result has been grati- 
fying. Forsyth-Rowan, Miss Sallie Grimes, District Correspond- 
ent, was the first 100% District, followed by the Districts of 
Granville, Guilford, Mecklenburg and Richmond. By the time the 
Year Book is printed, we hope the four remaining vacancies, 
namely: Edgecombe 2; Wake 1; Orange 1 will have been filled. 
The Negro District has increased the number of Correspondents 
by two. 

There has been a decided increase in interest judging by the 
number of Branches that have requested information on mission- 
aries to be used on programs. These requests have been answered 
promptly and material sent. 

Through letters and cards our missionaries are made to feel 
that we are in close personal touch with them and are praying for 
them regularly. 

An increase in the amount of the Christmas checks is also a 
concrete evidence of wider interest. 

The District Correspondents have cooperated in a very fine way, 
getting material out promptly to the Branches. The Contacts 
which I have made personally and through letters with these 
splendid women will be cherished by me to the end of time. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Nellie P. Johnson, 
Missionary Correspondent. 



REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE ON NORTH CAROLINA 
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

Working in cooperation with Mrs. Huddle, the Diocesan Secre- 
tary of Christian Education, we hope each Branch of the Woman's 
Auxiliary will study in 1948-49 the five-point program of the N. C. 
State Legislative Council. This will be the program promoted by 
the Council during the 1949 session of the State Legislature. Your 
branch Secretary of Christian Education should receive a copy of 



The Woman's Auxiliary 51 

the program during the summer. The five points are as follows: 

I. Provide an effective system, with adequate financial support, 
for the enforcement of the compulsory school attendance law. 

II. Provide minimum wage and maximum hour standards for 
women and minors. 

III. Provide for state participation in general assistance for per- 
sons between 16 and 65 years of age in need of financial 
assistance. 

IV. Provide, through the School-Health Coordinating Service, for 
complete physical examinations for all school children at 
reasonable intervals with a definite plan of referrals for the 
necessary follow-up treatment. 

V. Provide for strengthening the marriage requirements and 
safeguarding the divorce laws; and that in divorce proceed- 
ings involving children a definite plan for the care and 
custody of any child under 18 years of age must be presented 
to the judge hearing the case. 

It is interesting to know how the program of the Council is 
formulated and agreed upon. Over a year ago each of the member 
organizations of the Council, of which our Diocesan Auxiliary is 
one, was invited to submit subjects for social legislation, to be 
considered in formulating a tentative program. Last Fall (1947) 
the proposals whch had been received were submitted to four com- 
mittees in the general fields of Education, Health, Labor and 
Welfare. These committees studied the proposals submitted to 
them and presented reports to a meeting of the Executive Board 
of the State Legislative Council, held in February, 1948. After 
extensive study, the Executive Board of the Council recommended 
the 5 projects which were approved at a meeting February 20, as 
the tentative legislative program. This program was submitted 
for approval or disapproval to the member organizations of the 
Council. 

Our Woman's Auxiliary approves the program as a basis of 
study for our branches. The women in the branches, having this 
opportunity of informing themselves concerning proposed social 
legislation, recommended by leaders well equipped to advise us 
on such matters, can then make their individual decisions on the 
bills that come before the Legislature. They can write to their 
representatives in the Legislature and can vote for representa- 
tives according to the opinions they form in study, and the records 
of the men who represent them. 

The other member organizations of the State Legislative Council 
take an active part in lobbying for the bills that carry out the 
5-point program, finally agreed upon«by the Council. Your repre- 
sentatives from the Woman's Auxiliary do not do this, but they 
stand ready to help you in any way possible in your study of the 
program. They are also glad to receive your opinions for their 
future guidance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Katherine Duff Powell, 
Rep. on N. C. State Legislative Council. 



52 Sixty-Sixth Annual Eeport 

REPORT OF PERSONNEL CHAIRMAN 

To interest women and girls of our Diocese in Church work as a 
vocation is the purpose of this committee. To this end, it should 
inform them of jobs within the Church open to women, and the 
training and qualifications required. Also, it should acquaint them 
with present vacancies at home and abroad. Particularly in this 
connection, it should act as a liaison between the women in the 
various branches and the Personnel Department of the National 
Woman's Auxiliary. 

If the Church is going to make an impact on the world today, 
we must have trained workers placed at strategic spots, both at 
home and abroad. There is an urgent need for Directors of Re- 
ligious Education, Rural Workers, College Workers, Social Work- 
ers both home and abroad, Nurses, Teachers and other Missionary 
Specialists. The Post War work over seas needs trained workers 
as never before. 

We are asking each branch of the Auxiliary this year to be ever 
mindful of personnel vocational Church work, and to pray dili- 
gently that these fields of service now open may be supplied with 
efficiency and consecration. 

Any women interested in professional church work are asked 
to get in touch with the chairman and receive through her the 
material from National Personnel Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Belle Davis Cheatham, 

Personnel Chairman. 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club represents a unique, essentially 
vital but much neglected section of missionary endeavor. Let us 
think of it in terms of a crusade against spiritual illiteracy. Par- 
ticularly at this time there is need for the contributions which the 
C.P.C. work can make to the missionary program of the Church. 

During the recent war whole libraries of schools and seminaries 
in the mission field were destroyed. Funds have been raised for 
the restoration of seminary libraries in Japan and the Philippines, 
but the financial goals have by no means been reached. A gift 
from the budget of your branch or from individual members will 
help in this important task. 

Our own periodicals that we consider of real value may be sent 
on as quickly as we have read them to some person in the mission 
field. Our missionaries in lonely fields of service need the spiritual 
stimulation of reading the same things that we at home read for 
strength and growth. Christian books of study, devotion, biogra- 
phy and entertainment, and subscriptions to periodicals, secular 
and religious — these can be sent to a mission worker, a priest or 
a Bishop in the mission field as evidence of our continuous concern 
for them and the work they are doing. Gifts of books and periodi- 
cals printed in Braille may be made by your branch or by indi- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 53 

viduals. A memorial book sent to a mission field, instead of 
flowers sent to a funeral, is most fitting. 

The National Office is always glad to send you the names of 
those to whom these gifts may- be sent. They will also send you 
a Manual, price 25c, and a pamphlet, "Share With Them," which 
will be guides for doing the work in your Auxiliary in the future. 
The address is: 

The Church P. C. National Headquarters 
120 E. 22nd St., New York City 

All gifts of money should be sent to the Woman's Auxiliary Dio- 
cesan Treasurer, marked "Special — Church Periodical Club." 

The responsibility for seeing that C. P. C. work is done by the 
Auxiliary branch as a whole should be assigned to some one mem- 
ber. If your branch cannot have a C.P.C. Secretary, then some 
other officer who is interested and whose other duties are related 
to this work should be given the responsibility. She can then 
report to the branch on the places and people who need and receive 
your gifts. The whole plan then becomes a part of our Christian 
Education on the mission of the Church to the World. 

We must pray for increased interest and cooperation in this 
work during 1948-49 when we celebrate the 60th anniversary of 
the beginning of the Church Periodical Club. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lillie Hill, Diocesan Chairman 
Church Periodical Club. 



REPORT OF FIELD WORKER IN THE NEGRO DISTRICT 

As early as June 10, 1947, through the intense interest and 
kindness of our Interracial Chairman, Miss Emma J. Hall, plans 
began to take shape for a field worker in our district. On July 
11th in conference with our Diocesan President, Mrs. Bourne, and 
Miss Hall, the order was kindly given, "Go Forward," and from 
then we went, praying God's Holy Spirit to guide us every step 
of the way. 

In early September I had a conference with top executives at 
"281," New York City, and received much help, literature and 
encouragement. 

September 12th visitations began. We have 19 churches, 2 of 
which are parishes — all having had some semblance of an Auxil- 
iary branch. Fifteen of the nineteen have been visited thus far 
with 10 to 20-odd women present in most places. I attended church 
services and church schools, in most places speaking, by request. 

I attended two meetings of the Department of Christian Educa- 
tion at St. Mary's Student Center, Greensboro, and two Youth 
Conferences at St. Mark's, Wilson, and St. Philip's, Salisbury. 
The District meeting in the Fall was well attended and we had a 
very good program under the direction of our efficient Chairman, 
Mrs. J. W. Black. 

Material was sent each branch for World Day of Prayer. One 
woman used 100 or more leaflets and posters. I shared in a city- 



54 Sixty-Sixth Annual Report 

wide service and program with approximately 100 persons present. 

During the severe weather I sent out approximately 200 letters, 
many cards and made 66 visits to the sick and shut-ins in Durham. 

Our Goals: 

1. Organize branches on Diocesan and World-Wide plans — 
have had to reorganize most branches. 

2. Become Auxiliary conscious — to feel the Spirit of the 
organization, that of spreading God's Kingdom in the lives 
and hearts of all people. 

3. Recognize the value of using and studying our Year Book 
as the wonderful guide it is. 

4. Emphasize the acceptance of the challenge given in Mrs. 
Huddle's excellent ai'ticle, "Christian Education for Each 
Auxiliary Woman." 

5. Peruse the 5 Objectives of the Woman's Auxiliary.- 

6. Have well planned programs for the year — some branches 
have done well on this point. 

7. Live up to our obligations, financial, moral and spiritual. 
Our Plans: 

To put forth every possible means to continue to push our 
work in advancing in Christian Education. 

To improve, personally, in understanding of each phase of 
the work through study, work and prayer, and to pass it on to 

others. 

Being especially interested in the Future Church — Our Youth 
— we cannot too strongly emphasize our hopes and plans for 
greater work among them and for building up our Church 
Schools. 

With 19 churches and only seven or eight ministers we can 
readily see how very poorly we are manned and greatly handi- 
capped for leadership, and in some places very poor buildings 
and little equipment. The few ministers attempt to carry on two 
or three churches each — an almost impossible job. They are over- 
worked or, in instances, not working enough so that results are far 
below par. Many fine, strong outsiders love our services. Others 
are hungry for the light, and we must "Go into all the world." 
People are there wanting to come in — they are willing and anxious 
to work. The lack of strong leadership is our greatest handicap 
and crying need ! We need our Bishop's help to adjust some impor- 
tant matters. We must plan and recruit for really progressive, 
consecrated Leadership ! 

Respectfully submitted, 

Constance Young, 

Field Worker.

Charlotte, N. C. 

April 27-28, 1949 



I ought to consider the business which occurs in the daily 

order of Providence as the work which God appoints me; and I 
should apply myself to it in a manner worthy of God, namely, with 
exactness and with tranquility. I ought not to neglect anything 
or be passionately vehement about anything, for it is dangerous to 
do the work of the Lord negligently on the one hand; or, on the 
other, to appropriate it to ourselves by self-love and false zeal. 
In this last case, our actions arise from a principle of self-will: we 
are eager and anxious for the success, and that under the pretence 
of seeking the glory of God. Thus self-love disguises itself under 
the appearance of zeal; and grieves and is afflicted when it mis- 
carries in its designs. God, grant me Thy grace to enable me 
to be faithful in action and resigned in success ! My only business 
is to do Thy will, and to do it as Thy will, not forgetting Thee in 
the performance of it. It is in Thy pleasure to give my feeble 
endeavors success or to frustrate my every effort.

to all nations as their Saviour and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
cur Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Guide us, Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest. 
Who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy land. Amen. 

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING

laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special care for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer friendship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy kingdom through

Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 



FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the 
Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set for- 
ward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
wc beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, 
the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens 
with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who are the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good deeds 
bi: accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Can- 
vass, and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts 
for the sake of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

Oh Lord, without whom our labor is but lost, and with whom 
Thy little ones go forth as the mighty: We humbly beseech Thee 
to prosper all works in Thy Church undertaken according to Thy 

holy will, (especially the work of ) and 

grant to Thy laborers a pure intention, patient faith, sufficient suc- 
cess upon earth, and the blessedness of serving Thee in Heaven; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR VOLUNTEERS 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with such 
love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost 
parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all things 
which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen.

may be worthy of world peace. This we pray in Jesus' name. 
Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
t^ all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then 
let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally 
received and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God ujpon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

Lord, save these Thy servants. 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come i^nto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with Thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy 
holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life: 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

ANALYSIS OF YEAR OF WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
OF DIOCESE 

1. Fiscal year of Diocese and branches runs Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 
because it must coincide with National Council fiscal year. 

2. Year of active study and action runs from 1st meeting in 
Fall (Sept.) to last meeting before Summer recess (June). 
Reason: It must conform to the plans and material sent out 
from National headquarters, and to the Diocesan Annual 
Meeting which must be held in the favorable weather of 
Spring. 

3. Summer is preparation period for activities to follow — it 
is the inactive first part of a new year of study and action. 

4. New officers should be elected at a branch meeting prior to 
Annual Diocesan Meeting. Reasons: (a) New officers are 
taken into consideration in the election of delegates to the 
Annual Meeting, (b) New officers' names can be given on 
report of the year's study and action for publishing in year 
book. 

5= New officers should be installed at last meeting before Summer 
recess (June meeting) . A few branches meet during Summer. 
Their officers should also be installed at end of June meeting. 



10 Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 

6. Officers installed at June meeting spend Summer preparing for 
coming year of activity. Program of Christian Education 
should be prepared during this time. 

7. New president presides at 1st Fall meeting (Sept.). For 
branches meeting during Summer she presides at July meeting. 

8. Report blanks are sent out to branches in March Diocesan 
president's letter. Reports cover period from previous July 1st 
to May 1st (as late in year as possible and yet in time for 
publishing in year book) . Reports are mailed back to District 
Chairman and Diocesan President in May. List of recently 
elected officers sent in on report then becomes correct in year 
book for longest period of year possible. 

9. Year book is sent out in August, before if possible. 

10. New treasurer is actually installed in middle of fiscal year, 



along with other officers, but this is much easier for her than 
taking office in January when she would immediately have to 
set up new pledges and budget. 

II. Annual Diocesan Meeting is the middle of April. This conforms 
to date of Diocesan Convention of the Church, and to the 
Bishop's schedule. Year's reports are not available for Dio- 
cesan officers for Annual Meeting, but "reports" at this meet- 
ing could consist of plans for the future and a general picture 
of work.

WE PREPARE FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS 

We are now ending the 1946-49 Triennium with its humbling cry 
and great theme "Give us, Oh God, the strength to build the city." 

From the programs of the several branches this year, we may 
conclude that there is a growing recognition of the need to under- 
stand and truly believe our Christian Faith and there is an urgency 
to practice that faith in building more Christian homes and an in- 
creasingly Christian world. 

And now we look forward to a new Triennium of 1949-1952. With 
it will come a new theme. Will this theme direct us to talk about, 
study and do something quite different from this triennium? Of 
course not, for the task is surely not finished, the city is still a 
dream. If we have made a small beginning in our building we 
must go on and we must continue to pray for the strength to do 
so. We will note, therefor, that only the wording of themes will 
be different. Our task will be the same. The theme for Triennial 
Meeting this September and October in San Francisco will be, 
"Called Unto His Holy Fellowship." 

This theme is an answer and a command. An answer to our cry 
of the past three years, Give us strength, a command to follow 
Christ if we expect to participate in building a Christian world. 
If we have been sincere in recognizing the need for a truly Chris- 
tian world and have been groping toward its building and have 
learned that the strength to build comes from God then we are 
ready to receive this answer and command. 

We who bear Christ's name are reminded that we are called, 
that is we are specially chosen for a purpose and it is our privilege 
and duty to answer and come unto His Holy fellowship, that is to 
learn to be close companions, knowing Him, loving Him, and fol- 
lowing Him. If we answer the call and accept the privilege of His 



16 Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 

leadership we will surely receive strength to build a good world, 
and through His Holy Fellowship we will be able to witness to Him 
in our homes, in our world and we will carry the news of His Holy 
Fellowship unto all nations. 

This theme is taken from I Corinthians, 1, 9. We would all 
find it helpful to read again this Epistle, by way of putting our 
minds in tune to begin our preparation for the new triennium. We 
will see how appropriate it is to our times. We will note that Paul 
teaches us the primary necessity for Christians to think clearly 
concerning the confusions and conflicts of our times, facing these 
with a true understanding and a belief that the Christian revela- 
tion is the only answer to the problems we have to solve. 

Paul points out that leaders and heroes always have followers 
in political, economic and social realms. Even the church is split 
into factions following various leaders. But Paul tells us that we 
must turn and listen to the call of Christ, the one true leader. All 
other leaders must be evaluated as servants to Him. If we are to 
build a Christian world we will have to come unto His Holly Fel- 
lowship. 

During the summer and after General Convention and Triennial 
Meeting we will be notified of numerous tracts, pamphlets and 
books to use for our study and program planning. However we 
do not need to wait. Let us go on from where we are. We can 
fit in the new as it comes to us. The National Council Department 
of Christian Education is planning Parish study programs for 
1949-1950. Two of these units will be on the Christian Family. 
The interdenominational Mission Studies for 1949-1950 are on 
1. Japan, and 2. Cooperation for a Christian Nation. Let us keep 
informed by reading our church papers. 

Let us remember that each woman has the responsibility of 
listening to and answering the call unto His Holy Fellowship. 
Woman's Auxiliary group programs and study classes should aid 
us but are not sufficient unto themselves. Personal and family 
prayer and Bible reading, personal study, thought and action will 
be the way the Christian world will come into reality. 

The privilege of serving as Diocesan Secretary of Education 
ends for me at this meeting. These three years I shall always 
cherish. I have had the support and cooperation of all of you. 
Your vision of the need for Christian Education and interest in 
individual and group programs has been an inspiration. 

I can assure our next secretary of education that she will find 
in this Diocese women who are ready to accept programs of study 
that will lead them to be better able to answer the Call Unto His 
Holy Fellowship.

Presentation service. 

4. Send out U.T.O. envelopes with notice of the service. 

5. Check parish records often to be sure you have all church 
women on your list. 

6. Appoint a committee that really works with you. 

7. Have two Presentations a year.

9. Have at least one program a year on the U.T.O. 

10. Send for U.T.O. printed materials at Church Missions House, 
281 4th Avenue, New York, N. Y.

12. Send all reports or contributions to the custodian of your 
District. 

13. Ask your rector to have a corporate celebration of the Holy 
Communion September 29, 1949, the day of the presentation 
of the United Thank Offering at the Triennial Meeting in 
San Francisco. 

Myrtle H. McCoy, 
U. T. O. Custodian. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

The Bible and the Church through the ages have proclaimed 
certain truths as a guide in man's relation to his fellowman. Our 
Church teaches us that when He was here upon earth, our Lord 
Jesus Christ, once and for all, gave certain fundamentals of faith 
which we must accept and practice if we are to be truly Christian. 
In the perfect prayer, our Lord prayed "Our Father." In using 
the word "our" he associated himself with all mankind, with the 
needy everywhere, of every race, color, and tongue. 

Throuigh Christian Social Relations we try to put into practice 
the brotherhood of man because we believe in the Fatherhood of 
God. A program of Christian Social Relations must be such that 
it will help individuals to seek and to find, and to express their 
Christianity through relationships with other individuals. 

Any program of Christian Social relations must contain the 
three following divisions: 

I. Worship. 

1. Frequent use of prayers for peace, for missions, for Chris- 
tian service and social justice. 

2. Observance of special occasions such as Race Relations 
Sunday, Labor Sunday and World Order Sunday. 

3. Corporate communions of individuals interested in social 
relations work. 

4. Special emphasis on Christian Social Relations in devo- 
tional periods of the auxiliary. 

5. Prayers for use in family worship. 

II. Study. 

An adequate study of social problems is imperative as a basis 
for our worship and action. An early conference with the 
secretary of Christian Education should be a means of in- 
corporating social subjects into the educational program. 
The following topics are suggested: 



18 Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 

1. Christian Marriage. 

2. Christian Home and Family. 

3. Displaced Persons. 

4. Race Relations. 

5. Labor and Employment. 

6. Social Legislation. 

7. The United Nations. 

8. World Order. 

The following Christian Social Relations packets may be ob- 
tained from the book store at 281 Fourth Ave., New York 10. 

1. The Christian and Citizenship. 

2. The Christian and the Community. 

3. The Church and economic life. 

4. The Church and Race Relations. 

5. The Church and International Relations. 

6. Social Relations in the Parish. 

III. Action. 

Action in any work undertaken as an individual or as a group 
to render Christian Service and to promote a better world 
for all people. It is very important that any social action 
is preceded by worship and study. Any branch may follow 
as many of the following suggestions as seem practical for 
the group. 

1. Support the programs of the agencies and institutions of 
the Church and the community which offer health and 
welfare services through gifts and volunteer service. 

2. Fulfil one's obligation as a citizen by careful voting, and 

by registering Christian opinion upon social legislation. 

3. Strive for better cooperation between the Negro and white 
branches of the auxiliary. 

4. Support the Southern Regional Council. 

5. Make a determined effort toward resettlement of Displaced 
Persons in the community. 

6. Send CARE packages. (50 Broad St., New York City 4.) 

7. Send much good used clothing to Church World Service. 
(New Windsor, Md.) 

8. Support Thompson Orphanage, St. Agnes Hospital and 
other schools and hospitals within the Diocese. 

9. Support overseas missions. 

Three booklets helpful to secretaries of Christian Social Re- 
lations are: 

1. When You're Chairman for Social Relations. 10 cents. 

2. First Steps in Christian Social Relations. 5 cents. 

3. Tell us about Christian Social Relations. (New.) 5 cents. 
These may be obtained from the Book Store, 281 Fourth Ave., 
New York City 10. 

Cora Galer Walker, 

Secretary of Christian Social Relations. 

YOUTH WORK 

1, Place yourself on Youth Mailing List by sending $1.00 to Divi- 
sion of Youth, 281 Fourth Avenue, New York. 

2. Subscribe to "Churchways," also from 281 Fourth Avenue, 
New York, for 25 cents a year. It contains a wealth of con- 
densed information. 






The Woman's Auxiliary 19 

3. Read the North Carolina Churchman, particularly the pages 
devoted to Youth activities. You may get ideas there which 
will be helpful in your own work with the young people. 

4. Make the young people feel that they have an important part 
to play in the life of the parish by giving them specific duties, 
some in cooperation with adults, and others for which they are 
solely responsible. For instance, let them 

(a) help with suppers at the parish house 

(b) help with every member canvass 

(c) collect clothing and food for any of the needy 

(d) collect, wrap, and mail articles for overseas relief 
There are many more you will think of. 

5. See that they participate in the Majors of the year — Youth 
Sunday with its annual offering, Epiphany Feast of Lights, 
Nationwide Corporate Communion, and the World Relief Pro- 
gram with its motto "Do it Day by Day." 

6. Reiterate the theme of the Youth Department — "To Know the 
Christ and to Make Him Known." 

7. Report at every meeting of the Auxiliary something of interest 
concerning the work among the young people of the parish. 

8. Foster interest in the youth conferences in the diocese, and see 
that your branch is represented by at least one young person 
at Vade Mecum or Camp Delaney. 

9. Enlist the aid of the members of the Auxiliary in all the de- 
partments of youth work, from the Guild of the Christ Child, 
the Church School, Junior Choirs, Junior Altar Guilds, Aco- 
lytes Guild, etc., through the Young Peoples' Service Leagues. 
Help with the Scout Troops, or any other organizations spon- 
sored by the parish. There are innumerable ways in which the 
women can be of invaluable aid and there are places which can 
be filled by our women only. Make them feel how necessary 
they are and what a grave responsibility and rare privilege is 
theirs in this all-important work of our church, namely, the 
developing of our Youth program and the bringing of our 
young people to Christianity. 

Mabel S. Lucas, 
Chairman of Youth Work. 

SUPPLY 

The supply work of the Woman's Auxiliary is to provide certain 
material needs of our various missions and institutions, both at 
home and abroad. The needs come under the headings of clothing, 
household and institutional furnishings, surgical supplies and 
occasionally vestments and altar linens and other things of a 
material nature, for which the requesting mission has not suf- 
ficient funds. 

Assignments are made to each diocese by the National Supply 
Department which has evaluated the needs and requests of the 
missionaries in charge. It is the responsibility, and privilege, of 
the women of the church to see that these needs are met. As 
members of the Atixiliary, we are given this satisfying and con- 
crete way of carrying out Christ's bidding, "Go ye into all the 
world and preach the Gospel." 

We were not given any assignment for Diocesan Missions in 
the period covered by this report but we were assigned two mis- 



20 Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 

sions in Puerto Rico: St. Hilda's and St. Joseph's. To these mis- 
sions, we have sent clothing for both adults and children, infants' 
layettes, household supplies and surgical materials. The latter 
are used in the dispensary operated for the peoples of the missions 
and the vicinity. Some of this clothing was made by branches in 
the diocese, who had volunteered to sew. The rest was purchased 
through the money contributed by your branches to the Supply 
Fund. Splendid boxes of used clothing were also shipped to them. 

A letter has come from the Rev. E. Reus-Garcia, the Missionary 
in charge of these missions, expressing his gratitude and that of 
his people for what they have received, and making another re- 
quest, which I now pass on to you. I ask for your help, and I 
quote from his letter, "If you know of any used and in good 
condition altar linen, purificators and choir surplices, we will 
greatly appreciate your helping us. We are in great need of 
these things which we cannot afford buying." If, in the branches, 
there are any of these items available, please send them to me 
and I shall gladly ship them to him. 

Besides the work done in Puerto Rico, $75.00 was sent to the 
Supply Secretary's Gift Fund. This fund replaces the former 
gifts of personal clothing sent to missionaries and their families, 
widows of missionaries and to lay workers, such as interpreter 
and catechists in Alaska and South Dakota, who serve the church 
or a part-time basis. These gifts are now made by check, shortly 
before Christmas, and are accompanied by a letter explaining that 
they are made possible by the interest of the women of the Church. 

To come closer home, the Thompson Orphanage was given $56.65 
with which to buy bedspreads. Branches throughout the Diocese 
have also sent them boxes of clothing. The need for this is always 
great, for without your help in this way, the girls and boys there 
could not possibly look the way they do: a credit to Mr. and Mrs. 
"Whisnant, the Episcopal Church and above all, to themselves! 

Although St. Marys School for Indian Girls in South Dakota 
was not assigned to our Diocese this year, they made a direct 
appeal to us. Thorugh the generosity of a friend, we were able to 
answer this appeal, and sent them 100 yards of splendid material 
which was used to meet an urgent need for curtains and other 
things. 

The branches who have done sewing for the Supply Department 
have made a great contribution to the work of the Auxiliary. 
There are others, who also volunteered to sew, who were not called 
on. That was because we expected to ask you to sew for missions 
ir> this Diocese, but that assignment did not come to us. However, 
we are confident that we shall be asked to work for our own 
Diocesan institutions and Missions this next year, and we are 
counting on you then. 

It is not possible to tell you now to what missions we shall be 
asked to send supplies as that information does not come to us 
until early Fall. I shall get that assignment to you at the earliest 
possible date, and I look forward to working with you all and 
sharing with you the joy of doing God's work by helping our less 
fortunate fellow men. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 21 

1949-1950 is a new year of study and action in the Woman's 
Auxiliary and one of new opportunities for each one of us. Let 
us make the most of them and ask ourselves wherein we can 
strengthen and improve the work of our department. 

1. Do we make a real effort to integrate it with that of the 
Educational Department? 

2. Do we avail ourselves of the help that department can give 
us to inform ourselves and Auxiliary members about the 
missions and countries to which we are sending supplies? 

3. Is each woman in each branch given an opportunity of know- 
ing and understanding the needs of the institutions and 
missions of this Diocese, as well as of those overseas? 

4. When, of necessity, changes have to be made in personnel of 
officers during the year, do we promptly notify our District 
Officers and in turn the Diocesan Officers, so as to save 
valuable time in getting material and information to the 
correct person and thereby eliminate the necessity for re- 
peating the procedure? 

5. Do we have a clear understanding of the distinction between 
the work of the Department of Christian Social Relations 
and that of the Supply Department? 

6. Do we realize that the Thompson Orphanage depends greatly 
on our boxes of good "out-grown" and not "out-worn'' cloth- 
ing and that their need for coats, woolen articles, etc., is a 
pressing one? 

7. Are we prompt in furnishing assignments and particular 
about sending in report forms? 

8. Finally, do we make an honest effort to see that "the last 
woman in the last pew" is informed about the Supply De- 
partment and given an opportunity to share in its work? 

Sallies Cameron Labouisse, 
Secretary of Supply. 

PERSONNEL 

For many years the women of the church have been saying 
prayers and making offerings of money to the United Thank 
Offering; and for many years women have been offering their lives 
to the service of the church. It has been only comparatively re- 
cent that we have been stressing the latter contribution; that is, 
stressing it through the various dioceses by appointing a personnel 
representative on the Executive Board of the Diocese. North 
Carolina appointed its first personnel representative less than five 
years ago. Within that time much stimulation has been given and 
growth shown in this branch of the church's program. However, 
at the present time there is dire need for professional workers at 
home and abroad. 

The fields of service are wide and varied. They are Missionary 
Directors of Religious Education, College Workers, Teachers, 
Preachers, Rural Workers, Doctors, Nurses, Secretaries, and Di- 
rectors of Education in Parish, and other Specialists. Professional 
church training is given at the following schools: Windom House, 
New York, St. Margaret's House, Berkeley, California, Divinity 
School in Philadelphia, and Bishop Payne Divinity School, Peters- 
burg, Virginia. 



22 Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 

All of us must develop a consciousness of the needs of the church 
for trained professional workers, and we should keep watchful 
eyes on gifted young people in our communities who are potential 
recruits. We should be alert to present to them in personal con- 
versation the opportunities for service to the Master in vocations 
in the church. 

The needs are constantly listed in church papers. "Church Ways" 
carries a monthly list of vacancies in the mission fields which 
should be given publicity in our auxiliary meetings and in meet- 
ings of our young people's organizations. The schools for special 
training, and the available help of scholarships should be made 
known. 

To develop interest in, and knowledge of personnel work in the 
dioceses, the following suggestions are offered to the Woman's 
Auxiliary, to the young people, and to the college workers: 

1) Woman's Auxiliary 

a. Have a program on : "Vocations in the Church for Women." 

b. Have a professional worker in this diocese speak on her 
work. 

c. Present to the parish, or to the young people, or to the 

men of the church a play, a movie, or a speaker on "Pro- 
fessional Vocations in the Church." 

d. Panel— Clergyman, Director of Religious Education, 
Teacher and Youth Worker. 

e. Request the rector of the parish to preach on "The Voca- 

tion of Laymen and Women." 

2) Young People 

a. Have a play on "Vocations in the Church," or on "A Mis- 

sion Field of the Church." 

b. Panel on: "Vocations in the Church." 

c. Debate: "Are Church Workers Necessary?" 

3) College Worker 

a. See that "Vocations" and "The Fields of Service" are 
presented. 

b. Entertain the college students in your home, by invitation 

on a Sunday when a Missionary preacher is in the pulpit. 

c. Send at least one student to Vocational Conference. 

d. Courses in Religion should be required in Church Schools 
and Colleges. 

With the will of God, and your help this part of the church's 
program will go forward. 

Belle Davis Cheatham, 
Diocesan Chairman Personnel. 

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club represents a unique, essentially 
vital but much neglected section of missionary endeavor. Let us 
think of it in terms of a crusade against spiritual illiteracy. Par- 
ticularly at this time there is need for the contributions which the 
C.P.C. work can make to the missionary program of the Church. 

During the recent war whole libraries of schools and seminaries 
ir. the mission field were destroyed. Funds have been raised for 



The Woman's Auxiliary 23 

the restoration of seminary libraries in Japan and the Philippines, 
but the financial goals have by no means been reached. A gift 
from the budget of your branch or from individual members will 
help in this important task. 

Our own periodicals that we consider of real value may be sent 
on as quickly as we have read them to some person in the mission 
field. Our missionaries in lonely fields of service need the spiritual 
stimulation of reading the same things that we at home read for 
strength and growth. Christian books of study, devotion, biogra- 
phy and entertainment, and subscriptions to periodicals, secular 
and religious — these can be sent to a mission worker, a priest or 
a Bishop in the mission field as evidence of our continuous concern 
for them and the work they are doing. Gifts of books and periodi- 
cals printed in Braille may be made by your branch or by indi- 
viduals. A memorial book sent to a mission field, instead of 
flowers sent to a funeral, is most fitting. 

The National Office is always glad to send you the names of 
those to whom these gifts may be sent. They will also send you 
a Manual, price 25c, and a pamphlet, "Share With Them," which 
will be guides for doing the work in. your Auxiliary in the future. 
The address is: 

The Church P. C. National Headquarters 
120 E. 22nd St., New York City 

All gifts of money should be sent to the Woman's Auxiliary Dio- 
cesan Treasurer, marked "Special — Church Periodical Club." 

The responsibility for seeing that C.P'.C. work is done by the 
Auxiliary branch as a whole should be assigned to some one mem- 
ber. If your branch cannot have a C.P.C. Secretary, then some 
other officer who is interested and whose other duties are related 
to this work should be given the responsibility. She can then 
report to the branch on the places and people who need and receive 
your gifts. The whole plan then becomes a part of our Christian 
Education on the mission of the Church to the World.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

65th ANNUAL MEETING — WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
Christ Church, Charlotte, April 27, 1949 

The choice of the prayer, Bring The Nations Into Thy Fold, 
as the Theme for our 67th Annual Meeting is a recognition of the 
fact that the ecumenical movement in every area of life is the 
important trend of thought in the world to-day. May this prayer 
for the Mission of the Church have as its foundation in our 
hearts the spirit embodied in the 117th Psalm: 

Praise the Lord, all ye nations; praise him all ye peoples. For 
his merciful kindness is ever more and more toward us; and the 
truth of the Lord endureth forever. Praise the Lord. 

We look at our children and grandchildren and venture fear- 
fully to imagine the problems that they as adults must face as an 
inheritance from us. If we cannot dwell on these thoughts, let us 
do with zeal our immediate tasks as they are presented to us 
as christian citizens; but more important than doing things is 
the urgency to be faithful and devoted soldiers and servants of 
Christ in this our time and place. We look unto Him as the Saviour 
of the World. 

In this year of study and action drawing to a close we have 
had as a special Objective listed in the Year Book the formation 
of new branches or new groups of established branches. One strong 
new branch, St. Anne's of St. Mary's, High Point, has been wel- 
comed into our Diocesan Woman's Auxiliary family while one 
rural branch at Grace Church, Lawrence, has been disbanded. It is 
more encouraging to look at the growth in total membership in 
the Diocese. This has grown from 3,466 in 1948 to 3,851 in 1949, 
an increase of over 10 c /c. Diocesan officers see many evidences of 
the interest of women in the branches in the whole work of the 
Auxiliary, Diocesan and National. 

Particularly are we conscious of growing strength in the Ne- 
gro District during the past three years. Their most capable leaders 
show a comprehension of Auxiliary work and their responsibility 
and relationship to the whole Auxiliary that forecasts strength 
for the future. By a ruling of the 1946 Triennial Meeting the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina is privileged to have an additional dele- 
gate from the Negro branches to join with five other delegates 
in representing our diocese at the Triennial Meeting in San 
Francisco. If our Diocesan Auxiliary is strong, we must remember 
that this is only one aspect of the strength of the Church in the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 33 

Diocese of North Carolina. Still we have only touched the sur- 
face of our potentialities. We take stock of our advances in hu- 
mility of heart, recognizing in them the fact that God is thus call- 
ing us to share in His plans for the extension of His Kingdom. 

From an over-all viewpoint it would seem that we place an over- 
emphasis in our branches on earning money and an insufficient 
emphasis on the joy and sacramental significance of simple, quiet 
giving of our money. It remains for each branch to decide for 
itself whether or not this is true in its own life. There is a whole- 
some balance to be attained; and if you feel that you need to work 
nearer to an ideal for your finances, one method would be to em- 
phasize Christian Education in giving in your programs. It is 
a constant task to keep before us the fact that our money is 
given as a means of glorifying God and thanking him for His 
mercy and is used to build churches and hospitals, to maintain 
schools, to pay salaries of men and women who give their whole 
lives to the work of the Church. 

The appreciative letters received concerning the Quiet Day of 
Prayer and Meditation last Advent in the nine districts point to 
the wisdom of observing this Diocesan wide day again next year. 
A Quiet Day of Prayer and Meditation should have a prior claim 
to a date on our calendars that is suitable to the purpose of pray- 
er, penance and meditation. We still may not have large crowds 
for this observance; but the genuine appreciation of those who 
had a part in the devotions this year indicates that they 
will bring others to share this spiritual feast in the future. We 
are most grateful to the clergy of the Diocese for their encouraging 
interest in this effort, particularly to those who were our leaders 
in the devotions. 

We are now ending the period between Triennial Meetings of 
the Woman's Auxiliary. Your delegates will go to the meeting in 
San Francisco next September where they will share in the wor- 
ship, thinking and discussion of representatives of the Woman's 
Auxiliary from all races and many countries. They must be con- 
scious at all times of the mind of the women at home whom they 
represent; they must feel your deep concern in the events of that 
meeting. With new plans evolved there, with new Diocesan of- 
ficers, there will be different emphases and fresh, invigorating 
viewpoints for these next three years. We must be quick to sup- 
port these new officers, quick to seize new opportunities, use new 
and wise strategy in our work, and alert to catch broader visions 
of God's will for us as members of His Church.

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
ANNUAL MEETING 

Christ Church, Charlotte, April 27-28 

I. Whereas, The Women of the Church, in Triennial assembled, 
laid stress on the need for silence in the Church's services, 
particularly before and after the Holy Communion, and 

Whereas, We should remember the admonition, "The Lord is 
in His Holy Temple, Let all the earth keep silence before 
Him"; therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of 
North Carolina will by personal example and the coopera- 
tion of their parishes forward the practice of silence and 
reverence in our churches; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That we request this resolution be 
printed in the bulletin of each parish. 

II. Whereas, The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church is primarily evangelistic in 
purpose and offers an avenue to membership in the Church; 
therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That we, as members of the Woman's Auxil- 
iary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 



The Woman's Auxiliary 41 

Church in the Diocese of North Carolina, seek out women not 
interested in any church with the hope that membership in 
the Woman's Auxiliary may bring them into the Church. 

III. Whereas, Racial and religious prejudice constitutes a menace 
to our National Unity, and is in direct violation of our Lord's 
command; therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That we, the Woman's Auxiliary to the Na- 
tional Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the 
Diocese of North Carolina, shall endeavor to combat this 
menace by avoiding any thought, word or deed which might 
contribute to the fostering of intolerance. 

IV. Whereas, The education of our children in our churches is of 
utmost importance to us; and 

Whereas, the new program of work designated to be done by 
the National Council under Dr. John Huess is in dire need 
of funds; therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese 
of North Carolina goes on record as considering this new 
program to be of primary importance so that our delegates 
may bear this in mind when attending the Triennial Meeting.

MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

The office of Missionary Correspondent is interesting and broad- 
ening to the person who has the privilege of being in contact with 
the Missionaries affiliated with our Diocese. Three years of as- 
sociation by letter with the District and Branch Secretaries is 
inspiring when we feel that by working together we have bright- 
ened the lives of our faithful workers even a little bit. 

Nearly every branch now has an active correspondent. My 
recommendation is to continue the writing of letters and cards on 
birthdays and special days as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving. 
Send gifts when possible and above all pray for our Missionaries. 
When answers are received, take time to read the letters at your 
monthly meetings. 

The Missionaries themselves have voiced their satisfaction in 
what has been done. The local branches seem to be more mission- 
ary conscious and the National office has expressed gratification 
at the interest this Diocese manifests in its missionaires. Results 
have shown that the methods used have been effective. A new 
"Calendar for Missions" should be ordered and used by all cor- 
respondents. 

Nellie Pilkington Johnson, 
Missionary Correspondent. 



N. C. STATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

The State Capitol building still hums with the busy typewriters 
of the clerks and stenographers, compiling and putting in order 
the work of the 1949 Legislature. For awhile all of us thought 
there might not be a report from your Legislative representative, 
but adjournment came and though the ink isn't dry on any of 
these bills, I will be able to tell you how each of the 5 points in the 
program succeeded. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 53 



POINT 1. 

Provide an effective system, with adequate financial support, 
for improving the enforcement of the compulsory school attendance 
law. 

A machinery bill was passed which gives the counties funds for 
additional personnel, one of which could be a truant officer. 

POINT 2. 

Provide for minimum wage and maximum hour standards for 
women and minors. 

This "point" has been a part of the program for several years 
and this is the first time it has ever come out of committee. It 
was killed as a bill on the floor but it did reach the Assembly. 

POINT 3. 

Provide for state participation in general assistance for persons 
between 18 and 65 years of age in need of financial assistance. 
This passed. 

POINT 4. 

Provide through the School Health Coordinating Service for 
complete physical examinations for all school children at reason- 
able intervals with a definite plan of referrals for necessary fol- 
lcw-up treatment. 

This bill passed and the method of enforcement is being worked 
out between the Board of Education and the Board of Health. 

POINT 5. 

Provide for strengthening the requirements and safeguarding 
the divorce laws, (this part passed), and in divorce proceedings 
involving children a definite plan for the care and custody of any 
child under 18 years of age must be presented to the judge hearing 
the case. 

This failed to pass. 

Yes, the Legislature for 1949 is over but already the State 
Legislative Council Steering Committee has started work on issues 
that need attention in the state. These proposals are being studied 
by trained groups and will be presented to the Steering Committee 
at its next meeting with their study. These may or may not make 
the program for 1951 but the State Legislative Council does not 
adjourn. 

Katherine Duff Powell, 

Rep. on N. C. State Legislative Council. 



DIOCESAN FIELD WORK 

The principal merit of any report made of work to be done, 
especially with its chief aim to further the "Extension of God's 
Kingdom" among men, is shown in the sincerity of the participants. 
Tc this end we would commend our co-workers in the field of 
service in which we are engaged for definite signs of increased 
interest and an earnest seeking, among many, for greater knowl- 
edge to carry on. 

1st. We would surge on with more earnest prayers — greater en- 
deavors and higher hopes to reach a worthwhile goal. 

2nd. We would build more firmly on the movements already proven 
worthwhile in our efforts to help "Build the City of God." 



54 Sixty-Seventh Annual Report 

3rd. We would strive for a far more reaching "break" into the 
hearts and lives for God, of all with whom we come in 
contact. 

I. Activities : 

1. During the year we have seen definite signs of more 
growth in becoming conscious of our sacred trust as 
members of this great organization, The Woman's Auxil- 
iary to the National Council. 

2. We have and will continue to emphasize the objectives of 
the organization. 

a. "Growth in the realm of the spirit." 

b. An understanding (more fully) of the work through 

systematic, intelligent study of the whole program of 
the Church. 

c. A greater knowledge of the world in which we live, its 

needs and possibilities. 

d. Above all, a greater knowledge of what our great 
church has to offer that will make of the world A 
Christian Community. 

II. 1. Of the 18 stations listed, the Field Worker has visited 16, 
with a second visit to all but 2 places (Visits each running 
from 2 days to a week). 

2. Norlina, which we thought lost to us, was visited and 
interest renewed. Monroe was at last reached. 

3. Three interesting, spiritual "Woman's Day" programs 
were held — two fostered by Field Worker. 

4. Through combined interest of Bishop Penick and St. 
Augustine's Chaplain, the Field Worker appeared as 
guest speaker at a Pre-Lenten service in St. Augustine's 
Vesper Service. By special invitation and permission, 
one visit on "Woman's Day Program" in St. James Church, 
Portsmouth, Virginia. 

III. Made tour of District in special meetings and slide showings 
.on "Fellowship.". 

Attended two planning conferences and one Department of 
Religious Education meeting. 
Plan to attend conference. 

Plan to attend Camp and study at "Windham House" this 
summer. 

Records : 

1. Our financial record will show greater participation in sup- 
port of Diocesan Budget. 

2. A number of smaller branches in pledge classification. 

3. Supply quotas larger. 

4. United Thank Offerings run into hundreds of dollars. 

5. Some few branches made "Special Gifts." 

6. More Youth Groups working. Warrenton has a group of 
40-odd. 

7. Stressing conference and camp attendance. More care and 
support of our church schools and church homes. Earnest 
prayer and work for consecrated leadership. 

Through Christian Fellowship we shall urge and continue to 
join the "Evangelism of all peoples" into one fold so that God's 
Peace can come to a needy world. 

Constance S. Young, 
Field Worker.

FOREWORD 

It is with a sense of grateful pride that I commend this Year 
Book to the members of the Woman's Auxiliary. Here is a modest 
story of a splendid achievement. The account is so restrained that 
the remarkable record of a year's work well done is not im- 
mediately apparent. I intend to keep this little book near me for 
ready reference and also for inspiration. It is packed with com- 
plete and accurate information that is really indispensable for an 
intelligent understanding of the program and activities of the 
Auxiliary. And when these reports are put together in this con- 
venient form and then read with the care that their importance 
deserves, one becomes aware of a deep spirit of earnestness that 
pervades them all. This underlying seriousness of purpose is 
like the golden thread that is woven into the cords and ropes of 
the British Navy. It reflects the high calling of loyal women who 
are ambitious for the Church to go "Forward into his Holy Fel- 
lowship." Read this little book for the value of its facts. Read it 
for the vision of the Church at work that it unfolds. Read it for 
the witness to the Spirit of Christ that it reveals.

Bishop of North Carolina

PRAYERS 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYERS 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known 
to all nations as their Savior and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and 
who didst send Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind: Help us, 
we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer and work and 
stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and peoples may be 
baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Savior; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Jesus, our Master and our friend, who claimest our service 
through the needs of our neighbors; Grant us so to see thy image 
in all our fellow creatures that in serving mankind we may min- 
ister to Thee, the living Savior of the world. Grant to each one of 
us, that we may do our part in bringing about an order of society 
where there is no just cause for discontent or bitterness of spirit, 
and where every person may be enabled to come to the fullness of 
perfection for which he was made, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 



6 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special care for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer friendship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy kingdom through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and 
praise, and bless these gifts to the setting forward of thy kingdom; 
that as we have gratefully received the benefits thy bounty has be- 
stowed, so we may cheerfully share them with thy children in all 
the world; for his sake whose life and death and rising to life 
again were a song of praise to thee, thou Most Holy, our Savior 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who has taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
we beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, 
the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens 
with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Amen. 



PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who are the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the .boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day bv day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good 
deeds be accented; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVAS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, 
and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts for the 
sake of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 7 

FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no 
good thing, but with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as 
the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of all Thy mis- 
sionaries, wherever they may be, (and especially the work of Thy 

servant — ) . Grant them the wisdom to know and 

the strength to do Thy holy will, and bless them with the hope and 
consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of the Son, Our 
Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR VOLUNTEERS 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Blessed Savior, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross 
stretching forth Thy loving arms; grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee and be saved. Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men 
everywhere with the love of God and of our fellowmen, that we 
may be worthy of world peace. This we pray in Jesus' name. 
Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and 
the Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done 
in His name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support 
us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen.

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and 
then let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally 
received and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

Lord, save these Thy servants. 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with Thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy 
holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life: 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen 
to serve Thee in the spcial work for which they have been selected; 
grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love 
in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportuni- 
ties for service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit 
of Thy Holy Church! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, 
that in the strength of it we may work without haste and without 
rest; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be 

faithful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the 
Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father 
and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you ever- 
more. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, 
in your work, in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen.

ANALYSIS OF YEAR OF WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
OF DIOCESE 

1. Fiscal year of Diocese and branches runs Jan. 1. to Dec. 31 
because it must coincide with National Council fiscal year. 

2. Year of active study and action runs from 1st meeting in 
Fall (Sept.) to last meeting before Summer recess (June). 
Reason: It must conform to the plans and material sent out 
from National headquarters, and to the Diocesan Annual 
Meeting which must be held in the favorable weather of 
Spring. 

3. Summer is preparation period for activities to follow — it 
is the inactive first part of a new year of study and action. 

4. New officers should be elected at a branch meeting prior to 
Annual Diocesan Meeting. Reasons: (a) New officers are 
taken into consideration in the election of delegates to the 
Annual Meeting, (b) New officers' names can be given on 
report of the year's study and action for publishing in year 
book. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 15 

5. New officers should be installed at last meeting before Summer 
recess (June meeting). A few branches meet during Summer. 
Their officers should also be installed at end of June meeting. 
New treasurer is actually installed in middle of fiscal year 
(see item 1 above) but this is much easier for her than taking 
office in January when she would immediately have to set up 
new pledges and budget. 

6. Officers installed at June meeting spend Summer preparing 
for coming year of activity. Program of Christian Education 
should be prepared during this time. 

7. New president presides at 1st Fall meeting (Sept). For 
branches meeting during Summer she presides at July meeting. 

8. Report blanks are sent out to branches in March Diocesan 
President's letter. Reports cover period from previous July 
1st to May 1st (as late in year as possible and yet in time for 
publishing in year book). Reports are mailed back to District 
Chairmen by April 25th. Lists of recently elected officers sent 
in on report then becomes correct in year book for longest 
period of year possible. 

9. Year book is sent out in August, before if possible. 

10. Annual Diocesan Meeting is the middle of April. This con- 
forms to date of Diocesan Convention of the Church, and to 
the Bishop's schedule. Year's reports are not available for 
Diocesan officers for Annual Meeting, but "reports" at this 
meeting could consist of plans for the future and a general 
picture of work.

REPORTS AND PLANS 



The Woman's Auxiliary 21 

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

68TH ANNUAL MEETING— WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
St. Mary's Church, High Point, April 19, 1950 

As your president, I welcome you to the 68th annual meeting 
of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina. It 
is a pleasure to see so many of you here and it is my earnest 
prayer that the two days ahead of us will prove of great value 
to us all. 

Since our last meeting in Charlotte, six delegates, elected 
there, have attended the Triennial meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary in San Francisco where we were enabled to catch a 
world vision of our great Church and her work at home and 
abroad. The theme of that meeting was "Called Unto His Holy 
Fellowship." That theme we have adopted for our meeting here 
in High Point with particular emphasis on the word "Called." 

We are called to worship, called to study, called to service, 
called to be good stewards and called unto His Holy Fellowship. 

As the program unfolds before us, I trust that the application 
of this theme will be the resolve of each individual present, and 
that we will take home with us to our respective branches a deeper 
and wider meaning of these words. 

There has been growth in our organization during the last 
year — growth materially and spiritually. But there has not been 
nearly enough. Our efforts must be increased. We could and should 
do very much more. 

There are now 108 branches with a total membership of ap- 
proximately 4,050. The newest branch is that of St. Mary's, 
Yanceyville, organized last summer. The budget was raised 
another $500.00 for 1950 and, as your treasurer will tell you 
later, we have a surplus of over $2,000.00 from the fiscal year of 
1949. I never thought particularly of the personal, practical uses 
to which this money is put until I began to receive letters of thanks 
from the recipients. They have given me an insight into the worth 
of our efforts which is surprising and gratifying, and far sur- 
passed my expectation. If each of you could read the letters, you 
would realize how greatly needed and appreciated are these 
funds, and you would rejoice that this money, contributed by you 
through your branches, is being used to further God's Kingdom 
on this earth and to bring others into the Fellowship. 

An indication of the wide-spread interests of our women was 
evidenced at the fall district meetings when each district desig- 
nated the offering for a different purpose — all worthy, may I add? 

And, I have been assured by those who know, that the Woman's 
Auxiliary can rightfully claim a little credit for the success of 
the Church's every member canvass with its increased budget, 
a result of our studies of Stewardship in all our branches. 

Spiritual growth has manifested itself in the fact that several 
branches began their year of study and action with a Quiet Day 
of Prayer in the parish. May I urge others to do likewise? There 
is an increased interest in study programs, and the observance 
of Lent has been more wide-spread and more genuine and sincere. 



22 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

In 11 places in the diocese a Quiet Day of Prayer and Medita- 
tion was observed the first Friday in Advent. The attendance was 
disappointingly small. To those who did go, the benefits were in- 
calculable. Please attend the next one — every one of you. Only 
by being present can you realize how helpful and inspirational 
this one day, given entirely to meditation and prayer, can be to 
you. May I quote one of the clergy who so generously gave of 
themselves to make this service possible? 

"It is my sincere belief that unless the women of the Auxiliary 
learn how to pray and meditate, all the activities and programs 
will be of little or no value. As a Priest of the Church, I would 
like to put in a plea for increased emphasis on the spiritual life 
in the program of the Woman's Auxiliary. It seems to me we 
spend too much time on the fringes and not enough on the heart 
and center of the Christian Life. . .These Quiet Days are a step 
in the right direction, and I hope that next year many more will 
attend." 

I think I need add nothing more to that eloquent plea for a 
deeper, inner spiritual life. 

There seems to be a bottleneck in the flow of information 
which should reach every woman in the Auxiliary. I urge each 
of you branch presidents to attend assiduously to this most im- 
portant duty of yours. "The last woman in the last pew" should 
know what is going on, and you, the branch presidents, can help 
immeasurably by seeing that the information contained in my 
letters is given to everyone, and that the pertinent content of 
the church publications, diocesan and national, is made known 
throughout your branch. We must know what we are doing, and 
why, before our real interest is aroused. 

It has been my happy privilege to speak about the Triennial 
at all nine district meetings last fall, and to several branch meet- 
ings and to one men's club gathering. I have also attended two 
board meetings of the board of managers of Kanuga, and one 
meeting of the board of Thompson Orphanage. And, of course, 
there have been innumerable conferences with committees and 
individuals within the diocese. I must not forget the Woman's 
Auxiliary conference at Vade Mecum, nor the Adult Conference 
at Kanuga which were also pleasant and profitable additions to 
my official duties. 

This message would not be complete without a recognition of 
the unfailing response and enthusiasm and invaluable aid I have 
received from my fellow officers during my first year in office and, 
indeed, from all the women with whom I have come in contact. 
Their cheerful willingness to undertake any task which is as- 
signed to them and their splendid cooperation with me and with 
each other have been an inspiration to me. 

Let us go forward together, let us listen more intently when 
we are called, and respond more readily, let us become members 
of the Holy Fellowship and, by so doing, let us lead others to our 
Lord and Master.

The Woman's Auxiliary 43 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

The Episcopal Church has more than 250 institutions and 
agencies scattered throughout the United States which were es- 
tablished by church men and women who believed that concern 
for their neighbors was a necessary part of their worship of God. 

The church is the only institution which can meet completely 
the challenge of the times. Christianity is a social religion. It is 
not a way of life for one man living alone, but for all men living 
together. It has a social nature as well as a spiritual one. We 
emphasize the eternal values of the fatherhood of God and the 
brotherhood of man, and in so doing, the earning of bread is re- 
duced to its place as a means to a greater end, the end of serving 
God. 

Interest in Christian Social Relations seems to be steadily 
mounting in our diocese. Splendid work has been done during the 
past year and we go forward with confidence to even greater 
participation in a program of worship, study, and service. All 
activity starts within the branch and it is within the power of 
every parish to serve its community better. There is danger that 
in our zeal to better conditions in our ^community, we may lose 
sight of opportunities in areas where people undergo suffering 
and privation that we will never know. 

The following suggestions are given to branch secretaries of 
Christian Social Relations as a means of planning and carrying 
out an adequate program. The size of the branch will determine 
the number of projects to be attempted, but at least one effort 
should be made under each heading of worship, study, and service. 

I. Worship. 

A. Corporate communion for the committee on C. S. R. 

B. Observance of special days. 

a. Christian Family. 

b. Labor. 

c. Race Relations.

SUPPLY 

Undoubtedly there are some of you in this audience who are 
new in Auxiliary work and are not familiar with what is done 
by the Supply Department. There are others, I am sure, who may 
have it confused with the work of the Christian Social Relations 
Department. Therefore, I shall repeat some of what I said last 
year in an effort to define the work and the responsibilities of the 
Supply Department. 

The Supply work of the Woman's Auxiliary is to provide for 
certain material needs of our various missions and institutions, 
both at home and abroad. These needs come under the headings of 
clothing, household and institutional furnishings, surgical sup- 
plies and occasionally vestments and altar linens for which the 
requesting mission has not sufficient funds. 

In the past all assignments were made to each diocese by the 
National Supply Department which had evaluated the needs and 
the requests of the missionaries in charge. This year, however, 
our diocese, at the request of the National Supply Department 
has fallen into step with other progressive dioceses and has taken 
on the responsibility of filling the needs of our own diocesan in- 
stitutions which heretofore have been assigned to other dioceses 
throughout the country. This has meant taking over virtually all 
of the linen needs of the two negro hospitals: St. Agnes, Raleigh, 
and the Good Samaritan, Charlotte. To them you have sent huge 
quantities of hospital garments, blankets, sheets, pillow cases, 
towels, layettes, etc. The administrators of the hospitals tell me 
that the articles sent them were so badly needed that in every 
instance they were put to immediate use without even reaching 
the shelves of the hospital supply closets where reserve quantities 
are kept. 

In assuming the responsibility for our own institutions we did 
not feel that we would be following Christ's teachings if we failed 
to minister to those in need outside our dioceses as well. Therefore, 
we also accepted an assignment for an Indian mission at Sisseton, 
South Dakota. We have sent the Indians there all manner of 
wearing apparel, which was purchased in time to reach them for 
Christmas. The missionary in charge, The Rev. Earl Kneebone, 
was overjoyed and most appreciative of having this much needed 
clothing to distribute for Christmas. 

Here in our diocese where the Thompson Orphanage is dear 
to our hearts it delights me to tell you that we were able to give 
Mr. Whisnant $200.00 with which to start a fund for the purchase 
of new beds for the entire orphanage. Those of you who were 
visitors at the orphanage after Mrs. Whisnant's tea during the 
annual meeting last year will recall those sunken old beds and 
will realize how vital is the need for new ones to replace them. 

The Tuttle Community Center in Raleigh which does splendid 
settlement work among the negroes of that city as well as the 
Thompson Orphanage and Sisseton Indian Mission, all received 
boxes of excellent used clothing from the whole diocese. That 
clothing is of inestimable value in the work of these institutions 
and we should not lose sight of the importance of its being service- 
able and in really good condition. 



46 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

A check for $65.00 was sent to the Supply Secretary's Gift 
Fund. This fund replaces the former presents of personal clothing 
sent to missionaries and their families, to widows of missionaries 
and lay workers. These gifts are now made by check to the in- 
dividual shortly before Christmas. They are accompanied by a 
letter explaining that they are made possible by the interest of 
the women of the Church. 

This report is not so much an account of what the Supply De- 
partment Committee has done as it is a report of what you have 
clone. Each District Supply Secretary and, through you, each 
Branch Supply Secretary has responded willingly to the requests 
made of you. This year our diocese has accomplished in round 
numbers fully three times as much as last year. We are growing 
up in the Supply work and I am filled with enthusiasm for the 
accomplishments of the year just ended. 

Next year will require the same effort and cooperation if we 
are to continue to grow and carry on our responsibilities. Please 
remember this in planning your budgets and your work. Let us 
never forget that in this way we are given the joy and satisfac- 
tion of knowing that we are contributing to the comfort of those 
who are sick and to those who are in need of our help.

Secretary of Supply.

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE SUPPLY SECRETARIES 

1. Make every effort to integrate your work with that of the 
Christian Education Department. 

2. Avail yourselves of the help that department can give you 
and your Auxiliary members in learning about the missions 
and countries to which you may be sending supplies. 

3. Make every effort to see that each member of each branch 
is given an opportunity of knowing and understanding the 
needs of the institutions and missions of this Diocese, as 
well as those in the foreign or domestic mission field. 

4. When, of necessity, changes are made in personnel of officers 
during the year, promptly notify your District Secretary 
and in turn the Diocesan Secretary, so as to save valuable 
time in getting material and information to the correct 
person and thereby eliminate the necessity of repeating 
the procedure. 

5. Strive for a better understanding of your members of the 
distinction between the work of the Department of Christian 
Social Relations and the Supply Department. 

6. Always be prompt in furnishing assignments and particular 
about sending in report forms, using these according to the 
instructions given on each blank. The correct use of the 
report forms and the enclosure cards for each shipment to 

any institution or mission is of utmost importance to ensure 
credit being given to the branch making shipment. 



48 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

After three years as Custodian of the United Thank Offering, 
I give up my office with deepest regret. Each year has increased 
my sense of privilege in serving with the hundred and more branch 
and district custodians who have conscientiously and devotedly 
caused this Offering to grow in spiritual depth and financial in- 
crease. 

The culmination and reward to me of three years of U. T. O. 
work was in being at the General Convention in San Francisco 
to present our Offering on the Golden Alms Basin and seeing and 
hearing the missionaries who are the recipients of our prayers 
and contributions. A panorama of the Church's work was spread 
before our eyes and the U. T. O. is a tremendous part of that 
splendid work. 

One of the great addresses made at the Convention was by 
Bishop Stephen Neill who is assistant to the Bishop of Canterbury 
and a former missionary to India. He said, "Naturally, I am a 
fanatic on the subject of missionary work overseas. My ideal for 
the Church is that one communicant in every hundred should be 
a missionary in the non-Christian world, and that the other ninety- 
nine should be raising funds to support him. Perhaps such an 
ideal is too high for the ordinary Church to contemplate, so let us 
suppose that one in every five hundred should be set apart for 
missionary work. I am afraid that a budget on that basis, pre- 
sented to the Presiding Bishop, would cause the poor man a violent 
heart attack." "But," he says, "I believe that it is you, the women 
of the Church, who must call the Church back to the spirit of high 
adventure. We who have been missionaries spend our time gnash- 
ing our teeth over the apparent trivialities of the Church in a 
time of crisis and peril with which we are faced today." 

The triennial goal of $2,000,000 was reached and was a cause 
for great rejoicing. However, a statistician at the Convention fig- 
ured out that if every woman in the Church gave the small sum 
of 1 cent a day, or $3.65 a year, we could place $5,000,000 on the 
Altar at the next Convention. Our own Diocesan contribution for 
the three years was $47,046.24 with a carry-over of about $1,100 
from the Fall Ingathering. Our Spring Ingathering so far amounts 
to $8,407.87. The total for the year is $16,208.60. I recommend 
that because of the good nucleus of $1,100 carried over from the 
last triennium, we would have only five Ingatherings this next 
triennium, thereby eliminating a hurried Fall Ingathering the year 
of the Convention. 

In this United Thank Offering there are countless sacrifices 
known only to God. We know what is done with the funds but we 
can never know how God uses the hidden acts of sacrifice and 
prayer that accompany them. Let us search our hearts and com- 
pare our own spirit of thankfulness with that of the poor leper 
woman in a Philippine mission who came to a United Thank Of- 
fering service with $25.00 saved from her meager government 
allowance and saying, "I wish to express my thankfulness to 
Christianity which has taught me to be patient, though I am 
blind and have no hands and feet." As we offer all our countless 



The Woman's Auxiliary 49 

tiny sacrifices to God, we ofier to Him ourselves in loving sur- 
render, that our gifts may become fruitful in His service.

U. T. O. Custodian.

52 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

INTERRACIAL 

For the past two years the Interracial Work in our diocese 
has been observed throughout the province of Sewanee in view 
of the fact that the services of Miss Constance Young as a full- 
time field worker for the Negro District have been engaged. This 
project was undertaken by the Auxiliary with the hope that 
every branch in the district would be strengthened and better 
organized through her efforts. 

As chairman of this committee my particular interest has 
been to see that the district used Miss Young's services and to 
assist her in planning her visits throughout the diocese. It has 
also been my privilege to take part in the various conferences 
held for officer training and program planning under the capable 
leadership of the district chairman, Mrs. James Taylor. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Catherine M. Thomas 



DIOCESAN FIELD WORKER 

It is a glorious privilege and a grave responsibility to share 
with the church in its work of Evangelism. Our first objective 
toward this end must be our own spiritual development which 
we believe may be strengthened through worship, prayer, study 
and Christian fellowship. Then to know our duties as Auxiliary 
members and leaders we should begin by making more constant 
use of our yearbook and through its study learn the year's plan 
of work, its objectives and the work and activities of each de- 
partment, and the help you may gain by attendance upon annual 
and District meetings. Believing always that our youth is the 
future church, let us be alert to plan their part of evangelism 
carefully in Church School and Young People's Service League 
activities. 

As our finances are an indication of growth in stewardship, 
we must study these records with this purpose in view and be 
especially earnest in constantly encouraging our parish churches 
to realize their diocesan obligations. 

Our district accepted Camp Delaney as its project last fall. 
Many of our boys and girls have little chance for any kind of out- 
ings during the summer. Camp life gives them the opportunity 
to develop physically, mentally and spiritually. Let us urge some 
boys and girls from our parishes to attend and then do what we 
can to help them. To show our appreciation for what has been 
done for Camp Delaney and to make it a place of which we may 
be proud let us each do our share. 

When we have put forth our best effort in all fields of service 
may we feel our Father's "well done" reward. 

Constance S. Young. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 53 

PERSONNEL 

The purpose of the Personnel Department is to keep the laity 
informed as to the needs of the Church for trained professional 
workers. The fields of service are wide and varied; they are: Sec- 
retaries, College Workers, Directors of Religious Education in 
Parishes, Teachers, Nurses and Specialists. Professional Church 
training is available at the following schools: 

Windham House, New York, N. Y. 

St. Margaret's House, Berkley, California 

Divinity School, Philadelphia, Pa. 

There must be a continuous stream of consecrated youth, 
trained for leadership, if the Church is going to advance. 

In order that this work may be more effectively accomplished, 
a resolution has been adopted providing for the appointment of 
a Secretary of Personnel in every branch of the Auxiliary. 

To develop interest in and knowledge of personnel work the 
following suggestions are offered: 

1. Woman's Auxiliary and Young People 

a. See that "Vocations" and "Fields of Service" are pre- 
sented to the laity. 

b. Present a play, a movie, or a speaker on "Professional 
Vocations in the Church." 

c. Have a professional worker in this diocese speak on her 

work. 

d. Inform .the young people of the available help of 
scholarships. 

e. Panel on "Vocations in the Church." 

2. College Worker 

a. See that "Vocations" and "Fields of Service" are pre- 
sented to the students. 
b. Send at least one student to a Vocational Conference. 

Each member of the Woman's Auxiliary can, through prayer* 
and service, help to overcome the shortage of Personnel which 
today cripples the on-going work of the Church. 

Belle Davis Cheatham, 
Diocesan Personnel Chairman. 



54 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

YOUTH WORK 

As I look back over the past months, during which I have been 
your Secretary of Youth Work, I find myself confused by a variety 
of emotions. I am, simultaneously, elated about the marked suc- 
cess of the work in some parishes; hopeful, in others; and con- 
siderably concerned over the many who have difficulty in starting 
or carrying out the work. In reviewing reports from several 
Youth Work Secretaries several facts have become apparent. 
Some have reported that they have active and interested groups; 
others, that they cannot interest the children; others, that they 
have too few children with which to do any active work; — but 
always, somewhere in the report the cry is "We lack adult interest 
and leadership." 

I realize that figures or statistics are tiresome, but I do want 
to call your attention to this fact. From the most accurate figures 
which are available to me, there are in this Diocese about 7,000 
children, and around 4,000 members of the Woman's Auxiliary. 
Of course, not all of these 4,000 are active, but with few excep- 
tions, all 7,000 of the children are. What a field for service, and 
an opportunity for us to put into practice that for which we pray 
in our Auxiliary prayer "work for the extension of Thy King- 
dom". These children are looking to us for leadership, guidance, 
inspiration and example. Surely, from our 4,000 we can recruit 
capable, talented, and interested leaders for our Youth — and we 
are not limited to the women of the Church. We can use our in- 
fluence to interest the men of the Church in leading Youth 
activities. 

I want to urge each branch to try to send some of its young 
people to the Camps at Yade Mecum this year. At the camps the 
children are provided with the very best talent for the religious 
education. (Just imagine what private camps would have to 
charge if they were able to employ such people as the Revs. Tom 
Smythe, Moultrie Moore, and Miss Eleanor Snyder, to name just 
a very few of those who are associated with the camps.) Try to 
persuade your parish or individuals in it to provide scholarships 
to the camps, and in order for Camp Delaney to get the start it 
needs in interesting their boys and girls in attending, provide 
scholarships for the Negro Youth of your community to attend 
Camp Delaney, which I am happy to say has undergone extensive 
improvements. The donation of scholarships is a wonderful op- 
portunity for those people who are interested in youth work, but 
who are unable, for different reasons, to take an active part in it. 

We hear too much nowadays of the waywardness and "care- 
nothing" attitude of our Youth. Let me remind you that children, 
being human beings, do not change. It is our attitude toward 
them, our approach to their problems, and our emphasis on what 
the world considers important which have changed. It is our 
challenge and our duty to guide and direct them into wanting to 
fill their place in the Church, and in equipping them to assume 
their responsibilities as citizens in the world and in the Kingdom 
of God. 

Vivian S. McMillan, 
Secretary of Youth Work.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club is one of the co-operating agencies 
of the National Council and represents a vital but much neglected 
section of our Missionary endeavor. As a Diocese we have been 
active in sharing our magazines, Bibles, Prayer Books and 
Hymnals locally, but have not informed ourselves as to the full 
scope of this work. We are thus depriving ourselves of the priv- 
ilege of contributing to a project which is making the tools of 
Christian teaching available to every one and to every institution. 

The important project for this Triennial is 'The Books Fund'. 
We know that in order to maintain a high standard, Universities, 
Colleges and Hospitals must have the necessary technical books, 
text books and periodicals. Such books cannot be included in the 
regular appropriations to these institutions, so they turn to the 
C. P. C. to provide this much needed assistance. There are definite 
requests for certain books and periodicals in the C.P.C. files at Na- 
tional Headquarters. The National Office is always glad to send 
you the names of those to whom such gifts may be sent. They will 
also send you a Manual, price 25 cents, and a pamphlet 'Share With 
Them' which will be guides for doing this work in your Auxiliary. 
The address is: 

The Church P. C. National Headquarters 
120 E. 22nd St., New York City 

Last year's reports show that this work is growing and that 
there is an awakening interest throughout the whole Church. Leb 
us each one share in this Missionary program of the Church. 

Lillie Hill, Diocesan Chairman, 
Church Periodical Club. 



56 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

REPORT OF MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

In nearly every branch of the Auxiliary the missionary cor- 
respondents have been active and all Auxiliary members are alive 
to their missionary obligations. 

An experiment was tried this year, namely, that of providing 
a monthly news bulletin to aid the branch correspondents. This 
served as a clearing house for letters from missionaries, and also 
as a medium for suggestions and reminders to the correspondents. 
These bulletins were likewise sent to the missionaries, who were 
thus informed of the work that other women and men are doing 
in the field, and made aware of the deep concern felt for them by 
the folks back home. 

During the year, many kodak and other pictures were accumu- 
lated, and combined into a large scrap book. This book is dedi- 
cated to the President, Mrs. Edwin F. Lucas, and will be put in 
some place of easy access for future reference, as a pictorial his- 
tory of one year's work in the mission field. 

There is untold satisfaction in dealing with enthusiastic dis- 
trict chairmen, and branch leaders, and deeply appreciative mis- 
sionaries. In a sense this department may be thought of as under- 
girding the whole Auxiliary, for it knits all the other departments 
into a definite unity of purpose; it puts into practice the theory of 
human fellowship; and draws us all nearer to the goal of that 
fellowship unto which we are so graciously called by Christ, 
himself, who said, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you." 

Josephine A. Osborne, 
Missionary Corres]3ondent. 

SUGGESTIONS FOR MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENTS 

The study of the Year Book is a vital part of every guild of- 
ficer's work, to learn the aims of the Auxiliary, and its plans for 
accomplishing them. The Missionary Correspondent's objective is 
to create deeper interest in missionary work. At the very first, 
select at least one missionary from our list, for special attention 
during the year. Then study about them, write to them, and pray 
for them. Have each member aid you, and do not do all the work 
by yourself. Perhaps the members have already waited a long time 
for such a chance. 

PRAYERS: a, Offer prayers for missionaries at each meeting. 

b, And in your own private devotions. 

c, Remind the rector to have mission prayers at 
Corporate Communions. 

As an aid, "The Calendar of Prayer for Missions", a 25 cent 
pamphlet from the Church Missions House, is indispensable. It 
covers the whole world, and is brought up-to-date each year, with 
details on the individual missionaries. 

LETTERS: Have all members of the guild aid in writing often 
to your chosen missionary, or missionaries, sending 
greeting cards for birthdays, and festival occasions. 
Send gifts whenever possible. Sign without fail, if 
even just the name of the guild, for "the gift with- 
out the giver is bare".

EEADING: "An informed church is a strong church!" Keep 
this slogan before you. Read three or four Church 
papers regularly for information, and to provide 
material for short, lively programs at every meet- 
ing. See suggestions under "Christian Education" in 
this Book. Throw in as many filmstrips and pro- 
jector slides as practicable.

N. C. STATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

With State Legislation, you are either looking backward to 
what has been done and what has been left undone, or to a coming 
legislature to try again on the undones and add a few new ones 
to the list. The choice of what is most needed in the field of social 
legislation is large, but by years of experience it has been found 
by the North Carolina Legislative Council, that it is better to 
hammer hard on 5 or 6 points than to try to reform all fields at 
once. With two years between sessions, it is sometimes discourag- 
ing, but to Raleigh citizens it seems the flood of legislators is al- 
ways with us. 

The following items are carried over from 1949 : 

1. Provide an effective system, with adequate financial support, 
for improving the enforcement of the compulsory school attendance 
law. 

2. Provide for minimum wage and maximum hour standards 
for women and minors. 

3. Provide that in divorce proceedings involving children a 
definite plan for the care and custody of any child under 18 years 
of age must be included in the order of the judge hearing the case. 

These are additional items proposed for 1951 : 

4. Abolish the fee system in lieu of salary for operation of 
jails and for enforcement of the criminal laws. 

5. Increase the jurisdiction of the juvenile court as to include 
children 16 years of age. 

6. Abolish the death penalty for arson and burglary. 

I hone each branch secretary of Christian Education will again 
this year receive with her material a leaflet with these reasons 
for inclusion in this program. Please try to include them in your 
year's program. 

Thank you for taking me as your representative on the Leg- 
islative Council for the past four and a half years. To work with 
all of you in this small capacity has been a privilege I shall never 
forget. 

Thank you. 

Katherine Duff Powell, 

Rep. on N. C. State Legislative Council. 



60 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON COURTESY AND FINDINGS 

The Courtesy and Findings Committee have the happy re- 
sponsibility of expressing the thanks of this whole company to 
those who made this Sixty-eighth Annual Meeting the fine and in- 
spiring occasion it has been: 

To Mr. Smyth and the Vestry of St. Mary's Church for pro- 
viding this singularly restful and beautiful setting; to the hostess 
Auxiliary and to all the laymen and laywomen whose careful 
thought and hard work made the wheels turn so easily; to Mrs. 
Wall and her helpers in the tremendous job of entertaining us; 
to the many friends of others churches of High Point whose co- 
operation and gracious hospitality is a living proof of church 
unity; to those who allowed us the privilege of inspecting the 
beautiful things at the Tomlinson Building; to the organist and 
choirmaster, Mr. Bergen, and his choir for the beautiful music; 
to the Altar Guild for the beautiful altar, our thanks. 

To our president, who has added new proofs of her statue and 
wide capabilities to those things we of the branches have already 
learned about her during this year; and to our visiting speakers, 
the Rev. Mr. Lea, Mrs. Morson, Miss Query, Col. Rusch, and all 
others who came to inform and inspire us. 

Another word of thanks must be added in the prophetic tense; 
thanks to the Bishop for his message to us; whose words never 
fail to send us "on our way rejoicing", and whose presence in our 
midst is a benediction. 

If a theme or tenor were felt during these two days, it might 
be expressed by quotations from two of the speakers: "Know more 
and care more", and "Pray, and have patience." 

Aware as we are of the disaster that threatens our world, we 
have here declared ourselves in need, as never before, of instruc- 
tion, and are ready to receive it. We have learned much here that, 
as Auxiliary women we need to know. We now return home to our 
branches, to pray, to give and to serve joyfully, to the best of 
our ability, to the coming of His Kingdom.

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
ANNUAL MEETING 

St. Mary's Church, High Point, April 19-20 

I. Whereas, The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council in the Diocese of North Carolina recognizes the 
extreme importance of cultivating the devotional life of 
the members, 

Be It Resolved, that absolute silence before and after 
church services be observed. To this end, the practice of 
reading the hymns, proper psalms, epistle, and gospel, 
and the Form of Family Prayer is suggested as excellent 
preparation and the means of maintaining a reverent 
silence. 

Be It Further Resolved that this resolution be inserted in 
the church bulletin of each parish from time to time. 

II. Whereas, the peace of this world is dependent almost 
wholly on the spread of the Gospel throughout the world, 
and 

Whereas, the responsibility of peace resides largely with 
us, as individual citizens of the world, and 
Whereas, little progress will be made towards lasting 
world peace unless we as individuals will allow ourselves 
to be led and loved by God, now therefore, 
Be It Resolved that each person in this assembly will re- 
turn to her parish and to her home, with a new determina- 
tion to assume the privilege of carrying on the Lord's 
program of love in every day life, and 

Be It Further Resolved that we show the spirit of forgive- 
ness in the common routines of life, that we refrain from 
criticism in thought or word of our church, our ministers, 
our fellow workers, and 

Be It Further Resolved that we shall make every effort 
to love the unlovable, whoever they may be in our lives. 

III. Whereas, the Quota of Displaced Persons accepted by the 
General Convention of our Church is 1,200 and the number 
assigned to the Diocese of North Carolina is twenty with 
the hope that it may be oversubscribed, therefore 

Be It Resolved that the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese 
urge that all branches constitute themselves a group to 
place as many D. P.'s in their respective communities as 
possible. 

IV. Whereas the Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council in 

the Diocese of North Carolina desires an informed and 
ever increasing membership ; and whereas we recognize 
St. Mary's House, the Episcopal Student Center at the 
Woman's College of the University of North Carolina as 
a potential source of future interested and informed 
members of the Auxiliary; therefore 

Be It Resolved that the Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council in the Diocese of North Carolina promote at St. 
Mary's House a program on the organization and the 
work of the Auxiliary; and 



66 Sixty-Eighth Annual Report 

Be It Further Resolved that we of the Woman's Auxiliary 
to the National Council in the Diocese of North Carolina 
urge the several branches to acquaint the girls of their 
parishes with St. Mary's House, to write to the student 
worker concerning them, and in any other way show an 
interest in the group at St. Mary's House. 

V. Whereas the National Council has given wholehearted ap- 
proval to the establishment of an International Christian 
University in Japan, 

Be It Resolved that the Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council in the Diocese of North Carolina commend this 
project to its members that they may be moved to contribute 
generously to this undertaking. 

VI. Whereas it was brought to the attention of the Annual 
Meeting that an offering of one penny a day would in- 
crease the offering in a triennium from two million dollars 
to five million dollars, therefore 

Be It Resolved that the women here assembled bring this 
fact to the attention of their United Thank Offering Cus- 
todians and urge its adoption in every parish. 

VII. Whereas the cause of peace in the world is the most pressing 
problem of all people everywhere, therefore 
Be It Resolved that every minister in the diocese be re- 
quested to have at least one prayer for peace every Sunday. 

VIII. Whereas The Woman's Auxiliary should have a better un- 
derstanding of Personnel work, and 

Whereas each member should be given an opportunity to 
share in the responsibility and promotion of this work, 
therefore 

Be It Resolved that Personnel be removed from the status 
of a special Committee and established as a Department 
of Personnel with the Diocesan Chairman thereby becom- 
ing a Secretary of Personnel, and with District and Parish 
each following the same procedure, to create a better 
means through which to carry out the work. 

IX. Whereas we believe that a great many of the periodicals 
and books found on our newsstands are degrading to our 
citizenry, particularly to our youth 

Be It Resolved that the Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese 
of North Carolina, in convention assembled, request that 
the Legislative Committee study this problem with a view 
to taking whatever steps are necessary towards the control 
and distribution of such degrading periodicals and books 
in our State. 

Mrs. James Beckwith, 

Mrs. A. L. Taylor, 

Mrs. Don Blanton, 

Mrs. John Berry, 

Mrs. John T. Richardson, Chairman.

FOREWORD 

"Increase in us true religion." This petition was the theme of 
the 1951 Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary. Almost every 
speaker on the program echoed the substance of this prayer. In 
fact, the whole Convention, in all its words and deeds, was an up- 
lifted intercession for the coming of God's Kingdom. This Hand 
Book has caught and preserved the deep missionary spirit of 
that wonderful gathering. I commend it to those who would be 
intelligently informed about the constantly expanding program 
of the Woman's Auxiliary, particularly in this Diocese. In addi- 
tion to the factual information that it contains, the earnest reader 
can detect in its compact pages a spirit of devotion to Him who 
is the author of all "true religion" and the "increase" of the 
Christian Church. Here is a true record of what God has wrought 
by the hands of faithful women in parishes and missions and out- 
of-the-way places. Those who read this inspiring story may be 
sure of a reward. 

Edwin A. Penick, 
Bishop of North Carolina 
"Ravenscroft" 
Raleigh, N. C. 



PRAYERS 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYERS 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known 
to all nations as their Savior and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whcse love reacheth unto the world's end, and 
who didst send Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind: Help us, 
we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer and work and 
stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and peoples may be 
baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Savior; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 



FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 



PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Jesus, our Master and our friend, who claimest our service 
through the needs of our neighbors ; Grant us so to see thy image 
in all our fellow creatures that in serving mankind we may min- 
ister to Thee, the living Savior of the world. Grant to each one of 
us, that we may do our part in bringing about an order of society 
where there is no just cause for discontent or bitterness of spirit. 
and where every person may be enabled to come to the fullness of 
perfection for which he was made, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 



Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 



FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace 
for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and 
draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of 
all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. 
Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer 
and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy 
kingdom through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and 
praise, and bless these gifts to the setting forward of thy kingdom; 
that as we have gratefully received the benefits thy bounty has be- 
stowed, so we may cheerfully share them with thy children in all 
the world; for his sake whose life and death and rising to life 
again were a song of praise to thee, thou Most Holy, our Savior 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 



FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who has taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
we beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, 
the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens 
with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who are the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good 
deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVAS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, 
and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts for the 
sake of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 7 

FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no 
good thing, but with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as 
the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of all Thy mis- 
sionaries, wherever they may be, (and especially the work of Thy 

servant ) . Grant them the wisdom to know and 

the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and 
consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of the Son, Our 
Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR VOLUNTEERS 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go into the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Blessed Savior, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross 
stretching forth Thy loving arms; grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee and be saved. Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men 
everywhere with the love of God and of our fellowmen, that we 
may be worthy of world peace. This we pray in Jesus' name. 
Amen. 

FOR WORLD PEACE 

Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace 
proceed; kindle, we pray thee, in the hearts of all men the true 
love of peace, and guide with thy strong and peaceful wisdom those 
who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquillity 
Thy Kingdom may go forward, till the earth shall be filled with the 
knowledge of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and 
the Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done 
in His name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support 
us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen.

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and 
then let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally 
received and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants. 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with Thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy 
holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life: 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen 
to serve Thee in the special work for which they have been select- 
ed; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of 
their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and 
love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their op- 
portunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and the 
benefit of Thy Holy Church! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, 
that in the strength of it we may work without haste and without 
rest; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be 

faithful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the 
Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father 
and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you ever- 
more. Amen.

ANALYSIS OF THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
OF THE DIOCESE 

1. The fiscal year of the Diocese and the branches runs from 
January 1st to December 31st. Reason: It must coincide with 
the fiscal year of the National Council. 

2. The year of active study and action runs from the first meet- 
ing in the Fall to the last meeting before Summer recess. Rea- 
son: It must conform to the plans and material sent out from 
the National Council. 

3. New branch officers should be elected at a meeting prior to the 
Annual Diocesan Meeting. Reason: (a) The names of the new 
officers can then be listed in the new year book, (b) New of- 
ficers should be considered in the election of delegates to the 
Annual Meeting. 

4. The Annual Diocesan Meeting is usually held the second week 
after Easter, conforming to the date of the Diocesan convention 
of the Church and to the Bishop's schedule. 

5. New branch officers should be installed at the last meeting be- 
fore Summer recess. The new president presides at the first 
Fall Meeting. A few branches meet during the Summer. Their 
officers should be installed at the June meeting. The new presi-

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

69TH ANNUAL MEETING— WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
St. Philip's Church, Durham, April 11, 1951 

As your President, I welcome you to the 69th Annual Meeting 
of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of North Carolina. It is 
a pleasure to see so many of you here, and it is my earnest hope 
that the two days ahead of us will prove to be of great value to us 
all. 

The keynote for this meeting, "Increase in Us True Religion," 
was chosen because true religion encompasses all phases of our 
auxiliary work. 

As the program unfolds before us and we hear detailed reports 
and plans of each department, I hope application of this theme 
will be the resolve of each individual present and that every one of 
us will use this prayer daily, taking home to our respective branches 
the wider and deeper meaning of these words. 

During the past year our Auxiliary has grown in many ways — 
numerically by about 500, the total membership now being, 4,503. 
We lost two branches but gained three, making 109 in the diocese. 
(I hope representatives of those three new ones are here today) — 
St. Michael's, Raleigh; St. John's, Henderson; Galloway Memorial, 
Elkin. 

Our Treasurer will report on the budget and surplus but she 
won't know of the many extras and specials which were noted 
on the report blanks. A careful estimate of all the money given 
by the women — including your budgets, United Thank Offering, 
Supply, Intercessory day offerings, central fund, missionary gifts, 
your many local projects, such as a roof or a carpet or an organ 
for the church — reached the surprising amount of almost $75,000. 
The widespread interest of the women, as evidenced by the recipi- 
ents of these extras, is very gratifying and leads one to the belief 
that we are striving to obtain one of the objectives in our Constitu- 
tion—that of the Extension of the Kingdom. 

A study of the branch reports revealed the fact that more and 
more of our women are members of prayer groups and that a great 
many of you attend regular Bible classes. The members of many 
more branches celebrated the Holy Communion on our two inter- 
cessory days and at our United Thank Offering ingatherings. About 
300 of you participated in the Quiet Day of Prayer and Meditation 
in December which is a big increase over the previous years this 
day has been observed in each of our nine districts. However, 300 
is a small percentage of 4,500. My fervent prayer is that at least 
twice as many of you will avail yourselves of this privilege next 
December. 

Summer conferences were well atended. I'm sure you've all 
heard of the success of the Woman's Auxiliary Conference at Vade 
Mecum under the capable direction of Miss Eleanor Snyder, where 
there was capacity attendance of over eighty from 39 branches. The 
Adult Conference at Kanuga had enrolled seventeen women from 
this diocese and fifteen of us attended the Conference of Church 
Workers at St. Augustine's, Raleigh, last June. Dare I say that 
we are striving harder than ever toward the second objective in 
our Constitution, that of religious education? You'll hear more of 
that from Mrs. Jones in a little while. 



20 Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 

Our third objective is that of Christian Social Service. Mrs. 
Walker will tell you of that part of our work, but let me say that 
over a third of our branches support from one to five children at 
the Thompson Orphanage. Later on in the program you will hear 
of a plan to increase our social service to those children. 

I won't take the time to read again the resolutions adopted a 
year ago, and see how well we have carried them out, both in our 
personal lives and in our relationship with others. I trust each 
one of you will do so when you return home and add to those adopted 
in 1950 the new ones which will be voted on affirmatively tomorrow. 
Resolutions are only empty words if they are not followed by ac- 
tion. 

I have one more request to make of each of you. Please inform 
yourselves about what is going on in our Church. The branch prsi- 
dents can be of tremendous help in seeing that each of her mem- 
bers is given the pertinent content of the Church publications, both 
national and diocesan. Keep the flow of information going so that 
the interest of the "last woman in the last pew" is aroused, and 
aroused to the extent that she will act and that her true religion 
will be increased. 

It was my happy privilege to be one of your representatives to 
the Provincial Meeting in Tampa last October. I spoke about this 
meeting to two districts and one branch, and have appeared be- 
fore eight other branches during the year. I have attended a 
meeting of the Board of Managers of the Thompson Orphanage 
and a meeting of the Board of Directors of Kanuga; also the Dio- 
cesan Convention in Winston-Salem last May and four Executive 
Council meetings, at all of which I made a report of our Auxiliary; 
and, of course, there have been innumerable conferences with com- 
mittees and individuals within the Diocese. Last, but not least, 
I had the rare opportunity of attending the Consecration of our 
Bishop-Coadjutor and the luncheon in his honor, at which time I 
presented to him a gift from the 4,503 women of the Diocese. 

My message would not be complete without a recognition of the 
unfailing response and enthusiasm and invaluable aid I have re- 
ceived from my fellow officers — and, indeed, from all the women 
with whom I have come in contact. Your cheerful willingness to 
undertake any task which is assigned to you and your splendid 
cooperation with me and with each other have been an inspiration 
to me. 

Let us pledge ourselves anew to obtaining the three objectives 
of our Church as stated in our Constitution, let us go forward to- 
gether in the work of our Lord and Master as we pray reverently 
and sincerely that He increase in us true religion.

In accordance with your instructions, we present the following 
statements from the books of the Woman's Auxiliary, to the Na- 
tional Council, of the Protestant Episcopal Church Diocese of 
North Carolina: 

1. Summary of the Treasurer's Cash Reecipts and Disburse- 
ments 

2. Analysis of Cash Receipts and Disbursements 

3. Disbursements of 1949 Surplus and Balances of "Specials" 

4. Receipts and Disbursements of "Specials" for 1950 

Cash in bank was confirmed by depository bank, and reconciled 
at December 31, 1950. The net amount of $165.49, cash items in 
early January 1951, but applicable to December 1950, is included 
as cash transaction in the month of December 1950. 

Cash in bank on January 1, 1950 amounted to $3,302.88. Net 
cash receipts over disbursements amounted to $472.16. Cash in 
bank on December 31, 1950 amounted to $3,775.04. In addition 
to the amount of $3,775.04, the Auxiliary had $500.00 to their ac- 
count in full paid shares in the Security Building and Loan Asso- 
ciation, Durham, N. C, and $453.77 in optional savings in the

total assets of $4,728.81, according to the Auxiliary records. 

The amount of $500.00 was confirmed by the Association; how- 
ever, the Association reported $497.87 instead of $453.77 as indi- 
cated by the Auxiliary records. This may represent interest 
accrued on the books of the Association.

to us for the period May 1, 1950 to December 31, 1950. Cancelled 
checks and bank statements for the period January 1, 1950 to

42 Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

As I come to the close of a three year period of working- for 
and with you in the field of Christian Social Relations, I would like 
to evaluate the program, pointing up that which has seemed good, 
yet not failing to point out places that have been weak so that 
your new secretary will not have to work by trial and error and 
may be able to start on the second rung of the ladder. 

Our effort in the past three years has been largely educational. 
We found that the average branch needed to learn the immense 
scope of the work, and to learn just what activities can be labeled 
Christian Social Relations. We have had partial success, and as in 
any program of education, it must continue. It has been my pleasure 
to meet with eight of your branches and to attend seven district 
meetings where we discussed this program. Branches should keep 
in mind that your diocesan secretary is available to help you and 
should be used. 

There are several hurdles which your secretary must overcome 
if the program is to accomplish that which it is designed to do. 
First, that the national program is largely educational, and if any 
specific project is launched, it is likely to reach us after our pro- 
gram is planned for the year. Secondly, that we have been unable 
to find a niche wherein to fit into the diocesan program. And 
thirdly, that the diocesan and branch auxiliaries sometimes lose 
sight of the fact that we have a well set up committee. Projects 
may come up during the year that can well come under Christian 
Social Relations, and a new committee is formed to carry out the 
project. Local welfare, requests from missionaries that do not 
come under Supply or Missionary Correspondent, special projects 
for Thompson Orphanage, or any effort toward a better under- 
standing of race relations can well be referred to this committee 
which is ready and equipped to do the job and eager to be used. 

TJie last hurdle is the fact that there is so much difference of 
opinion as to just what projects to support. The diocesan projects 
are selected with care and are either suggested or approved by the 
national secretary of this committee. If one of the projects does 
not have your hearty approval, a token contribution would not be 
too much of a sacrifice while it would help to strengthen the unity 
of the group and encourage the committee to greater effort. 

We are over the hurdles, now to the pleasurable part of thank- 
ing you for your splendid cooperation. The plan of special pro- 
jects seemed to be of particular interest to the smaller branches 
and it was there we had the greatest response. Incomplete reports 
show us that we have sent over 270 yards of material to Jerusalem 
valued at $250 and 36 packages of supplies to nursery schools in 
Japan, plus contributions of $31. 

We are sending $185.50 to the Tuttle Community Center in 
Raleigh. This will be used for playground equipment for the 
nursery school. They are setting up a special playground in the 
side yard to be used by the 50 small children who have been un- 
able to use the playground with the larger children. We will furnish 
2 combination swing sets (which include 2 swings, bars, and a 
see saw) and a slide. The balance of the fund will be used for cots 
needed for the rest period. 






The Woman's Auxiliary 43 

In closing, I wish to thank you for the honor of serving as your 
secretary. It has been a rare privilege to be engaged in furthering 
projects which emphasize the reality of the brotherhood of man, 
and the imprint of treasured friendships is something time can 
never erase. 

To my successor, I will and bequeathe a work that will chal- 
lenge her greatest effort and give the greatest rewards. My love 
and prayers will follow you as you continue to exemplify Christian 
love through your program of Christian Social Relations. 

Cora Galer Walker, 

Secretary of Christian Social Education 



44 Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 

SUPPLY 

The work of the Supply Department has been denned for you 
so often that I do not believe it requires another definition here. 
Even those of you, who are new in Auxiliary work, will find that 
you will have every opportunity to learn about it at an early date. 
For the work, which is being done within our Diocese and for 
Missions outside, requires the help and effort of every Auxiliary 
member. 

The results of the year, now drawing to a close, speak loudly of 
the fact that almost every branch in the Diocese has had a larger 
share than ever before in the Supply work. This means their fi- 
nancial contributions as well as their time and efforts. Although 
this is not a statistical report, I believe that you will each one be 
interested in knowing that this year you have supplied to Saint 
Agnes Hospital, Raleigh and the Good Samaritan, Charlotte, ap- 
proximately three thousand articles. These include sheets, pillow 
cases, towels, patients' gowns, Doctors' and hospital workers' scrub 
suits and dresses, infants' layettes, etc. The value of all of these, 
if purchased through stores and surgical supply houses, is quite 
staggering and far beyond the means of the hospitals themselves. 
But because of the many branches, who have done such a splendid 
job in sewing and of interested friends in the textile business, who 
have kindly let us purchase necessary materials at low prices, we 
have been able to fill every request made by the hospitals. 

In addition to these two, we have also sent shipments to Saint 
Barnabas Hospital in Osaka, Japan, valued at $250.00. This is a 
maternity hospital with a capacity for one hundred and twenty 
mothers. It is doing a fine work in that country, where Christianity 
is meeting its greatest challenge. This was our only assignment 
outside the Diocese. 

Within the Diocese, the Tuttle Community Center and the 
Thompson Orphanage have received many boxes of excellent used 
clothing. I do not need to tell you what this latter contribution has 
meant to Mr. and Mrs. Whisnant and the girls and boys there. 
In these days of inflation and greatly increased prices, the money 
available could not possibly stretch sufficiently to buy all the 
clothes needed. More and more, you are depended on for your 
good outgrown and not outworn clothing to round out the eighty- 
five wardrobes of the Thompson Orphanage. 

The used clothing, bedding, etc., which has been sent to the Tuttle 
Community Center, is helping in the fine type of settlement work 
done by that institution and is the only contribution made by the 
Episcopal Church to what was formerly entirely a Church project. 

In December a check for $35.00 was sent to the National Council 
for the Supply Secretary's Gift Fund. This fund is distributed 
at Christmas time to retired Missionaries, their widows and fami- 
lies, to help pad their meager pensions. 

As I look back over the past two years, since we first undertook 
the responsibility of supplying the needs of our Diocese, without 
outside help, as well as those of Missions in the foreign field, I 
feel that we have come a long way and that each woman should 
feel proud of the part she has had in the success of this under- 
taking. Last year what was accomplished was fully three times 
greater than what was done the year before. This year it is ap- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 45 

proximately five times greater, both in monetary value and in 
number of articles supplied. We shall need to continue our greatest 
efforts financially and otherwise, if we are to maintain the stand- 
ard we have set for ourselves as a Diocese. I have no doubt that 
we shall. 

As my term of office ends, may I say "Thank You" to the mem- 
bers of my committee and each one of you for your unfailing help, 
your understanding and your friendship. I am deeply appreciative 
of the opportunity of working with you and having even a small 
share in the work of the Woman's Auxiliary.

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Your United Thank Offering, the perfect way of giving, is 
eager to reach more and more members of the Woman's Auxiliary. 
The work that is supported by these gifts is an ever growing 
one, hence our offering most grow. When you study the budget you 
become so very conscious of the never ending needs that must be 
met by us. When our women are alerted to the United Thank Of- 
fering our funds will be unlimited and only Our Father in Heaven 
will know the breadth and depth of our spiritual growth. We 
must work always toward giving every woman the joy and privi- 
lege of being a part of the United Thank Offering. Giving not 
just of her abundance but of self denial. 

If each one of us would pledge to give at least one Box to some 
one this Spring or Summer our "Offering with Power" would go 
up at least a fourth. Keep alive your United Thank Offering by 
talking about it. Keep your Blue Box ever before you as a re- 
minder of your opportunity and the Church's chance for growth 
in the Mission Fields. 

I am reversing my decision in regard to carrying supplies. Miss 
Beardsley, our Treasurer of United Thank Offering at National 
Headquarters in New York has requested all Diocesan Custodians 
to carry sufficient supplies to service all Auxiliaries under their 
supervision. Each branch will be expected to take care of the cost 
of material needed, that is not free. Boxes and pamphlets are 
free, but booklets, maps, charts and prayer cards have to be paid 
for. 

I have made fourteen talks on the United Thank Offering, at 
six of these, movies were also shown and I have conducted two 
District work-shops. I will also conduct the work-shop on United 
Thank Offering at Vade Mecum for the Woman's Auxiliary Con- 
ference. Two letters, Fall and Spring, have gone out from me to 
all Parish and District Custodians and one article on the United 
Thank Offering in the February issue of the North Carolina 
Churchman. 

There have been some expressions of interest in knowing where 
our Offering goes, this I have tried to stimulate in my talks. There 
is a dollar growth in some Parishes and I trust this means greater 
participation. 

Below I have listed, for you, the Parishes and gifts received 
in the Fall of 1950 and the Spring of 1951.

INTERRACIAL 



The Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina has 
made great strides in the past few years in Interracial work. More 
and more women of the Church are showing that the opportunity 
for service at our own door is not being overlooked. 

Marked improvement has been shown in many of the branches 
since the Field Worker has been at work. We feel that the work 
will continue to improve as we realize more fully each day that 
"We are our Brother's keeper." It is up to us as Christian women 
to set the example for this world of chaos and strife in which we 
find ourselves. Christianity must take a stand. 

Annie Black, 
Interracial Chairman 

DIOCESAN FIELD WORKER 

There are only a few Negro clergy to serve the entire diocese, and 
their work must cover many groups in widely scattered areas. This 
gives them a limited time to train our leaders, so this has, in all 
parishes and missions, been of first importance. Our leaders are 
not always able to take advantage of the privilege of attending 
such meetings as our district meetings and the Annual Meeting 
of the diocese, to obtain instruction and inspiration for their various 
duties in Auxiliary activities, so the Field Worker makes every 
effort to keep informed in order to be of service where she is 
needed. 

The work among our Young People has been stressed in every 
parish and mission. Leaders are given every possible assistance in 
their efforts to carry out carefully planned programs to interest and 
inspire the youth of our church, and this work is being strength- 
ened by the program of work carried on by Camp Delaney. 

Camp Delaney is our District Project, and working together as 
a group for the improvement of this splendid source of youth 
training and recreation, has been a great opportunity for us to 
learn more fully of the important place it can become in the 
church life of our people. Our young people have less than aver- 
age privileges for training in Christian leadership, so we must 
constantly strive to make Camp Delaney attractive and to make 
full use of its possibilities. 

Our records show no spectacular growth or improvement in any 
one field of service, but we believe a sympathetic as well as a 
comparative study of our records and reports will show a healthy 
and very encouraging growth in interest, action, and the devotional 
life of our branches. 

As your Field Worker and representative, I have been privi- 
leged to go into every parish and mission and to give help in any 
way possible. This has been done, first, by availing myself of the 
unusual opportunities given me by the National Church and the 
diocese to improve my own training and quality of leadership. The 
weeks of study at Windham House and Union Theological Seminary 
have been of inestimable benefit to me personally. The training 
has given me the confidence and encouragement that I sorely need- 
ed, and the fellowship and opportunities served to strengthen my 
faith and to give me a clearer vision to serve my people. Second, 
the ministers of our churches have cooperated in every way and 



50 Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 

have invited me to come to their parishes and have a part in mak- 
ing the best use of what we have in the way of equipment and 
in planning future activities and program. Then, the diocesan 
leaders have been generous and untiringly patient in their efforts 
to give our leaders help in filling to the best of their ability their 
offices in Auxiliary work. Then, last and most important, our wom- 
en themselves are constantly striving to learn more about the 
Woman's Auxiliary, its unlimited fields of service, and, in learning, 
have come to feel a deeper sense of their responsibility to go for- 
ward with the Church at large in study, action, and in a spiritual 
growth that will truly bear fruit now and in the future.

PERSONNEL 

The Objectives of the Department of Personnel are: 

1. To make known the urgent need of the Church for women 
workers trained to be Directors of Religious Education, Col- 
lege Workers, Parish Secretaries, Social Workers, Teachers 
and Nurses. 

2. To make available the necessary training for young women 
who are interested in entering these fields of service, and 
obtaining scholarships for them when necessary. 

3. To assist in placing these young women where they are most 
needed and best suited after they have received their training. 

4. To keep in touch with our women workers in the field at home 
and abroad. 

There is a great opportunity for young women of high personal 
and religious qualifications to find a career of service in our Church. 
As the needs of the Church become better known there will be an 
increase in the number of applicants for pioneering jobs of this 
kind. For this reason, the Personnel Secretaries of each branch 
are urged: 

1. To get information about opportunities awaiting trained 
young people of the parish. 

2. To select the most outstanding young person in the parish 
who has qualifications of leadership, an attractive and well- 
balanced personality and be sure she is aware of the possi- 
bilities for a career within our Church. 

The following leaflets will be of help!* 

1. Tell us about Personnel. 

2. Consider the Church. 

3. We work for the Church. 

4. The Church: A Profession for Women. 

It is most gratifying to know there are at least two college 
graduates from the Diocese of North Carolina who expect to enter 
Windham House, New York City; or, St. Mary's House, Philad- 
elphia in the fall to receive training for Church work. 

Each member of the Woman's Auxiliary should consider it her 
individual responsibility to create interest in this program through 
personal contact with the young people of her parish.

Secretary of Personnel

YOUTH WORK 

During the past year several additional branches have appointed 
Youth Work Secretaries, and reports from all the branches show 
a growing interest in the work. A workshop on Youth Work was 
held at Vade Mecum last summer, and from the findings of this 
workshop a booklet "A Handbook for Youth Work Secretaries" 
was compiled. Copies of this booklet were sent each branch secre- 
tary. Included in the handbok are duties of Youth Work Secreta- 
ries, which are as follows: 

1. Keep your Auxiliary informed of the activities and needs of 
the youth. 

2. Keep your Parish informed of the needs and activities of 
the youth. 

3. Cooperate with the Rector, Sunday School, and other or- 
ganizations in procuring adult leadership. 

(a) While the Youth Work Secretary is primarily concerned 
with the age group twelve through the teens, in many 
small parishes there are few young people of this group, 
so her activity and interest may certainly cover the 
cradle roll, Sunday School, Brownie Scouts, Cub Scouts, 
Junior Choirs, etc. 

4. Study the needs of the youth in your parish and try to in- 
terest the parish in providing the means to fill them. 

5. Subscribe to Youth Leaders Mailing List, — 281 Fourth Ave., 
New York 10, N. Y.— cost $1.00. 

6. Urge observance of special communions for youth, as de- 
signated by the National Council. 

7. Investigate possibility of interesting the Youth of your parish 
in one or more of the Youth Organizations, such as Girl's 
Friendly; Order of the Daughters of the King, Jr. Division; 
Order of Sir Galahad; Brotherhood of St. Andrews, Jr. Di- 
vision. 

8. Make the Youth feel that they are an important part of Parish 
life, and encourage them to participate in activities. See that 
they are given definite jobs to do — some in cooperation with 
adults and some on their own. 

9. Woi'k constantly to emphasize the importance of the parish's 
cooperation with the youth by supporting their projects. Too 
often only parents are aware or interested, and young people 
are hurt by the fact that the parish as a whole does not care. 

10. Interest the parish and the Auxiliary in giving scholarships 
to the Youth Conference, Y. P. S. L. Convention, and to the 
camps at Vade Mecum and Camp Delaney. 

11. The Secretary is not necessarily required to act in the capacity 
of advisor or leader to the youth groups, unless she has the 
talent, and is requested by the Rector or organization.

MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

First I wish to express my appreciation for the high privilege 
and honor of serving this Diocese as Missionary Correspondent. 
Also, I desire to thank the Missionary Correspondents of the Dis- 
tricts and Parishes for their fine spirit of cooperation. 

We are also grateful to our missionaries for the interesting 
letters and pictures they have been so thoughtful to send us. 
Your Missionary Correspondent has released the monthly bulletins 
and hopes that these have been inspirational and helpful. It is 
hoped that those Parishes which contribute so generously to the 
various projects and enterprises will report these activities to the 
Missionary Correspondent or to our Treasurer, so that they will 
receive proper credit. 

The Church has a definite missionary program which it has had 
since the infant Church of the Upper Room with Jeesus and His 
Disciples. Each of us is, or should be, a Missionary Beacon Light 
and a part of Christ's Holy Fellowship. 

We are living in a changed and changing world. A chaotic, con- 
fused world, which offers a new imperative to all Christian people, 
especially to our own country, to spread the doctrine of Christiani- 
ty as our first line of defense. We must carry the torch of Christ- 
ianity and spread the Gospel if civilization is to survive. We must 
accept our responsibilities and obligations to send missionaries to 
the foreign fields and to our United States. Religion and Christ- 
ian Faith are the only panaceas for the war-weary world. 

We must, therefore, evaluate our service, purge ourselves of in- 
justices and un-Christian attitudes in order to create a world 
vision. We do realize that kindness and friendship are the very 
essence of the human equation. 

We know full well that any church or any auxiliary is dying, 
which is not missionary minded. Let us hold in our hearts Jesus' 
parting injunction to "Go ye therefore and teach all nations, bap- 
tising them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy 
Ghost." "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have 
commanded you to do. I am with you always, even unto the end 
of the world" 

Blanche S. Robertson, 
Missionary Correspondent 



54 Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 

SUGGESTIONS FOR MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENTS 

1. Study purple Book, know your Church, the Church's program 
and your officers. 

2. Know the missionaries that are assigned to your District. 

A. Pray for them. 

B. Remember them with cards and letters. 

3. Take every opportunity to acquaint your Parish correspondents 
with their missionaries. 

A. Try to get as many programs in as you can, 

B. Remind your rector to have mission prayers at Corporate 

Communions. 

C. Try to get "Forth" in each home. 

D. Each correspondent should have "The Calendar of Prayer 
for Missions." This little book will keep us well informed on 
the lives and works of our missionaries, f he more we know 
about these Saints of God and Messengers of the word of 
God, the more we are going to help them with their won- 
derful work.

REPORT OF THE REPRESENTATIVE ON THE STATE 
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

The Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina is 
one of the sixteen state organizations having membership in the 
State Legislature Council. The Council was organized in North 
Carolina in 1920 by five women's organizations. In 1934 mem- 
bership was expanded to include representatives of statewide or- 
ganizations, with both women and men included in the membership. 
In 1941 the Council became the fifteenth State Council to join the 
National Council on State Legislation. 

The State Legislative Council has a two-fold purpose: (1) to 
propose new social legislation, and (2) to safeguard worthwhile 
legislation already enacted. Each member agency appoints one 
representative to a Study Committee, which was organized in 
1948. This committee works for two years studying the need for 
proposed legislation. After particular needs have been defined they 
are presented to the total membership of all organizations. If 
unanimously approved by all member agencies, the State Legis- 
lative Council becomes responsible for sponsoring the passage of 
specific legislation. 

The Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina has 
four representatives on the State Legislative Council. They are: 
Mrs. T. C. Powell, Jr., Raleigh; Mrs. James Beckwith, Warrenton; 
The Rev. I. Harding Hughes, Raleigh, who is a member represent- 
ing the N. C. Churchman, which will attempt to publicize to the 
women in the Diocese the program of the Council, and Mrs. John 
Richardson, official representative. 

During the legislative year of 1951 the State Legislative Council 
adopted a five point program. It consisted of: 1. Effective system 
with adequate support for improving enforcement of compulsory 
school atendance law. (This involved not a bill but a request for 
additional funds to enforce the compulsory school attendance law. 
The State Board of Education made such a request of the Ad- 
visory Budget Commission, but the Commission did not include it 
in its recommendations.) 2. Minimum wage and maximum hour 
standards for women and minors. 3. Provisions that in divorce pro- 
ceedings where children under 18 years of age are involved, a de- 
finite plan for their care and custody be included in the order of the 
judge hearing the case. 4. Abolish the fee system in lieu of salary 
for operation of jails and for enforcement of the criminal laws. 
5. Increase the jurisdiction of the juvenile court so as to include 
children 16 years of age. 

None of the five proposed bills passed the General Assembly. The 
Legislative Council feels however, that a good educational job has 
been done on the subject of these bills. 

I would like to report at this time on the action which has been 
taken by the legislative representatives on the Council in regard 
to Resolution IX which was adopted at the Annual Meeting in 
High Point last year. This resolution deals with the problem 
of degrading periodicals which are available to the youth of our 
State. The legislative representatives were asked by the Auxiliary 
to do something about this problem insofar as they could. The 
problem was referred to the Study Committee of the State Legis- 
lative Council which in turn referred it to the Library Division 
of the Council. The attached report is a result of their study. 



56 Sixty-Ninth Annual Report 



It has been a great pleasure to serve as the official representative 
of the Woman's Auxiliary of this Diocese on the State Legislative 
Council. On behalf of the other three members and myself I wish 
to thank you for the privilege and honor. 

Mrs. John T. Richardson, Chairman of 
Legislative Committee and Representa- 
tive on the North Carolina Legislative 
Council 

TO: Mr. Harlan C. Brown, President; North Carolina Library 

Association 

From: Committee Investigating Reading Materials in News Stands, 
Etc. 

Subject : Report of Findings 

The committee recognizes the existence of a very real problem 
in the matter of reading material available in news stands and 
other commercial places, it is its unanimous opinion, however, that 
legislative action is not the solution for this problem. 

1. In our country, laws are not merely for the present situa- 
tion, but set patterns for the future, and a law censoring 
reading material could become a dangerous precedent. 

2. Further, past experience indicates that prohibitive legis- 
lation will not alleviate the present undesirable situation. 

The committee does not wish to give a merely negative report 
and therefore offers the following suggestions: 

1. That each organization represented in the State Legislative 
Council of North Carolina become informed about efforts 
now being made by publishers such as the Association of 
Comics Magazine Publishers, i.nd pledge its support of their 
program of improving the quality of their publications. 

2. That local groups secure the cooperation of local dealers 
in making more careful selection of reading materials. 

3. That individuals and organizations show their appreciation 
of this cooperation through their patronage of such dealers. 

4. That fundamentally the primary responsibility upon parents, 
teachers, librarians, and others interested in the problem is 
that of instilling in children, from babyhood, a taste for 
reading that will develop a sense of values and discernment 
that will reject the shoddy and the cheap.

FOREWORD 



I couldn't be more honored than to be asked to write a Foreword 
to the Hand Book for the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. I have heard that a Foreword is for the purpose 
of commending a publication to the potential reader. In this case 
it is just the other way — the writer of the prefatory remarks is 
commended in being - privileged to occupy the position. However, 
he is most anxious to commend the contents of this book to all who 
love the Church and are happy when it is effective. The story 
which follows is one of great and noble accomplishment. 

It is a story about people who have made great sacrifice for a 
cause to which they are fully committed. It is a story about people 
who have inherited a splendid tradition of high standards of per- 
formance and have not betrayed their trust. It is a story of 
people who have prepared themselves through years of devoted 
service for increasing responsibility. 

In all of this they do not ask for any reward other than to 
share in the Redemption of the people of the whole world. 

As you read the thrilling account of what has taken place I am 
sure that you will be inspired to share what God has given you 
that all mankind may know His love. 

Richard H. Baker 

Bishop Coadjutor of North Carolina 
Greensboro, N. C. 



PRAYERS 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYERS 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known 
to all nations as their Savior and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and 
who didst send Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind : Help us, 
we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer and work and 
stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and peoples may be 
baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Savior; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be rilled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 



FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 



PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Jesus, our Master and our friend, who claimest our service 
through the needs of our neighbors; Grant us so to see thy image 
in all our fellow creatures that in serving mankind we may min- 
ister to Thee, the living Savior of the world. Grant to each one of 
us, that we may do our part in bringing about an order of society 
where there is no just cause for discontent or bitterness of spirit, 
and where every person may be enabled to come to the fullness of 
perfection for which he was made, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 



Seventieth Annual Report 



FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace 
for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and 
draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of 
all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. 
Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer 
and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy 
kingdom through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and 
praise, and bless these gifts to the setting forward of thy kingdom; 
that as we have gratefully received the benefits thy bounty has be- 
stowed, so we may cheerfully share them with thy children in all 
the world; for his sake whose life and death and rising to life 
again were a song of praise to thee, O thou Most Holy, our Savior 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 



FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who has taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
we beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, 
the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens 
with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Amen. 



PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who are the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ess, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good 
deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVAS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, 
and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts for the 
sake of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 



FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no 
good thing, but with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as 
the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of all Thy mis- 
sionaries, wherever they may be, (and especially the work of Thy 

servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and 

the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and 
consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of the Son, 
Our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. 



FOR PERSONNEL 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or young woman of this parish to choose one of the many 
vocations within the Church for his or her life work, whether it 
be in our own land or overseas. We pray Thee help each one of 
us, whatever our calling, to practice it as becomes a Christian 
in Thy Name and with Thy guidance. Amen. 



NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Blessed Savior, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross 
stretching forth Thy loving arms; grant that all mankind may 
look upon Thee and be saved. Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men 
everywhere with the love of God and of our fellowmen, that we 
may be worthy of world peace. This we pray in Jesus' name. 
Amen. 



FOR WORLD PEACE 

Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace 
proceed; kindle, we pray thee, in the hearts of all men the true 
love of peace, and guide with thy strong and peaceful wisdom those 
who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquility 
Thy Kingdom may go forward, till the earth shall be filled with the 
knowledge of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 



BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and 
the Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done 
in His name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support 
us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen.

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and 
then let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally 
received and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

Lord, save these Thy servants. 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with Thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy 
holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life : 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen 
to serve Thee in the special work for which they have been se- 
lected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance 
of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their 
opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and the 
benefit of Thy Holy Church! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Bless us, God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, 
that in the strength of it we may work without haste and without 
rest; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be 

faithful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the 
Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father 
and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you ever- 
more. Amen. 



BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, 
in your work, in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Woman's Auxiliary 13 

OBJECTIVES OF WOMAN'S AUXILIARY BRANCHES 
YEAR 1952-53 

"Create and make new our hearts and minds." — Theme of Trien- 
nial Meeting, 1952. 

When we offer this prayer to God, let us open our hearts to 
His Indwelling Spirit, our minds to a wider and deeper knowledge 
of His Truth, our hands in willing service for Him to all His 
children at home and in the uttermost parts of the earth. 

Let us open our hearts to Him through 

WORSHIP: 

1. As individuals, through daily prayer and private medita- 
tion, attendance at church services, especially the celebra- 
tion of the Holy Communion, prayerful use of the United 
Thank Offering Blue Box. 

2. As family groups, through grace at meals, family prayers, 
going together to church. 

3. As Auxiliary branches, by observing Corporate Communions, 
or worship services on : 

Jan. 6 — Feast of the Epiphany. 
Feb. 2 — Feast of the Purification. 

Mar. 25 — Feast of the Annunciation and the Spring In- 
gathering of the United Thank Offering. 
Oct. 18 — St. Luke's Day and the Fall Ingathering of the 
United Thank Offering. 

By attending the Quiet Day in your District on Dec. 5th, 
first Friday in Advent. 

By participating in the World Day of Prayer on Feb. 20th, 
and other prayer days sponsored by the United Council of 
Church Women. 

By forming prayer groups. 

By planning devotions for all our meetings as carefully as 
we plan the program and as an integral part of the pro- 
gram. 

By praying for our missionaries, for those from our parishes 
away at school and college, for those in the Armed Forces, 
for peace, for wisdom at the time of elections. (See Reso- 
lutions, page 64). 

Let us open our minds to Him through 

STUDY: 

1. Organize Bible classes, and groups to study the books in the 
Church's Teaching Series. 

2. Plan a program of study in accordance with the recommen- 
dations of our Diocesan and District Secretaries of Chris- 
tian Education. 

3. Share programs and speakers on the mission study topics — 
Africa, and Human Rights — with other church groups in 
our community, when possible. 

4. Cooperate with other groups in our community in studying 
legislation, civil defense, local youth problems. 

5. Read at least one general church paper — for example, The 
Living Church or Episcopal Church News — and Forth, 

the N. C. Churchman, and Churchways. Follow closely the 
reports on General Convention. Know the program of the 
Church, for we are Auxiliary to the whole program of the 
Church. 



14 Seventieth Annual Report 

6. Have brief reports on each department of Auxiliary work 
at each meeting-, and a program on each department at least 
once during the next Triennium. 

7. Be informed on the opportunities for young people to find 
a life work in working for the Church. 

Let us open our hands in service and gifts : 

SERVICE: 

1. In the parish by helping in the Church School, with Youth 
work, with college students, by visiting the sick and shut- 
in, by serving on the Altar Guild. 

2. In the community by assisting in projects developing out of 
study of community needs. 

3. In the diocese by supporting the Thompson Orphanage and 
other diocesan institutions and missions. 

4. In the nation by supporting missions as requested by the 
Supply Department, and by exercising our responsibility as 
citizens to vote at election time. 

5. In the world by participating in campaigns for overseas 
relief, and in assistance to Displaced Persons. 

6. By developing leadership in the different paths of service. 
The Woman's Auxiliary and the Church need leaders. 

GIFTS: 

1. Strive to see that every woman owns and uses a United 
Thank Offering Blue Box. 

2. See that our branch pays its pledge to the budget of the 
Diocesan Woman's Auxiliary — and increase it if we can. 

3. Encourage acceptance by our vestries of the full Church 

Program quota for our congregation. 

4. Make tithing our objective — 5% for the Church, 5% for 
other charitable causes. Episcopalians averaged 5 cents a 
week per communicant to the work of the National Church 
last year. Let us give more in proportion to our means. 

5. Be alert to respond to special calls from our Church at home 
and overseas. 

Let us open our hearts to all our brothers in Christ, includ- 
ing those whom we do not like. 

FELLOWSHIP : 

1. Have a spirit of friendliness in church. (See Resolution I, 
page ) 

2. Seek out inactive members, newcomers, the unchurched. 
Many are hungry for what our Church offers — let us not 
withhold it from them because of exclusiveness or timidity. 

3. Keep in touch with the young people from our congregation 
who are in college or in the Armed Forces. Draw them back 
into the fellowship whenever they come home. 

4. Practice and teach greater understanding of, and coopera- 
tion with, all races, classes and creeds, always remembering 
the Church is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. 



ANALYSIS OF THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
OF THE DIOCESE 

1. The fiscal year of the Diocese and the branches runs from 
January 1st to December 31st. Reason: It must coincide with 
the fiscal year of the National Council. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 15 



2. The year of active study and action runs from the first meet- 
ing in the Fall to the last meeting - before Summer recess. Rea- 
son: It must conform to the plans and material sent out from 
the National Council. 

3. New branch officers should be elected at a meeting prior to the 
Annual Diocesan Meeting. Reason: (a) The names of the new 
officers can then be listed in the new year book, (b) New of- 
ficers should be considered in the election of delegates to the 
Annual Meeting. 

4. The Annual Diocesan Meeting is usually held the second week 
after Easter, conforming to the date of the Diocesan convention 
of the Church and to the Bishop's schedule. 

5. New branch officers should be installed at the last meeting be- 
fore Summer recess. The new president presides at the first 
Fall Meeting. A few branches meet during the Summer. Their 
officers should be installed at the June meeting. The new presi- 
dent presides at the July meeting. 

6. New officers should spend the summer preparing for the com- 
ing year of study and action. The program of Christian Educa- 
tion should be prepared at this time. 

7. Report blanks are sent to all the branches in March. Reports 
cover the period of time from previous July 1st to May 1st. 
Branch reports must be mailed to the District Chairman by 
April 25th. Lists of recently elected officers sent in on the re- 
ports then become correct in the year book for the longest 
period of the year possible.

SECTION III 
ANNUAL MEETING 
REPORTS AND PLANS 



The Woman's Auxiliary 19 

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

70TH ANNUAL MEETING— WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
Church of the Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, April 23, 1952 

As your President, I welcome you to the 70th Annual Meeting 
of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of North Carolina. It 
is a pleasure to see so many of you here, and it is my earnest 
prayer that the two days ahead of us will prove of great value 
to us all. 

The keynote for this meeting is "Sharing in Redemption." As 
the program unfolds before us, and we hear detailed reports and 
goals of each department, let us realize that we must do our part 
in this great plan of Redemption, so that our efforts in all phases 
of Auxiliary life will be blessed. 

The Auxiliary has been blessed during the past year in many 
ways. Numerically, there has been an increase of about 300, mak- 
ing a total membership of 4,835. The number of branches has 
decreased, but only because, in several places, organizations in the 
same church have combined, thus adopting the recommended 
unified plan, and thereby strengthening the parishes involved. And 
we have three new branches, those of St. Timothy's, Winston- 
Salem, Church of the Holy Family in Chapel Hill and our baby 
branch, St. Matthew's in Mooresville. 

Our Treasurer will report later on the budget and surplus, but 
her report doesn't show the many extras and specials which did 
not go through her books. A conservative estimate of all the 
money given by you, including budget, United Thank Offering, 
supply, intercessory day offerings, central fund, missionary gifts, 
the many local projects such as a roof or an organ or a rug, 
reached the amazing amount of over $85,000. 

Even more gratifying than the total is your wide-spread inter- 
ests, as evidenced by the variety of recipients of these funds. 

It is thus obvious that in this way we are striving toward one 
of the objectives in our constitution: that of the Extension of 
Our Kingdom. 

Spiritually, too, we are renewing and revitalizing our efforts to- 
wards that objective. There has been a noticeable growth in the 
spiritual attitude throughout the diocese. Many more of you are 
active participants in prayer groups, and are attending regular 
Bible classes. The reports of the Quiet Day of Prayer and Medita- 
tion held in each of the nine districts the first Friday in Advent 
show a definite turning toward things of the spirit. This is evi- 
denced also in the number of branches observing the corporate 
communions on our two Intercessory Days, and at our United 
Thank Offering ingatherings. 

Another outstanding example of the spiritual interest mani- 
fested throughout the diocese is the fact that the District of Meck- 
lenburg brought the Rev. and Mrs. Edgar L. Sanford to Charlotte 
last month for a Healing Mission. The churches were filled to 
capacity at every service, and both Mr. and Mrs. Sanford were 
busy every day having personal interviews with sick and troubled 
people, many of whom came from other parts of the diocese. 



20 Seventieth Annual Report 

The conference at Vade Mecum was successful from every stand- 
point. There was capacity attendance, an excellent faculty, and an 
overflow on Visitor's Day. Results can readily be seen in many 
departments, particularly in the branches whose members were 
present for the entire time. 

There were twenty members of our diocese in attendance at the 
Adult Conference at Kanuga, six at the Lay Conference on Chris- 
tian Education at Sewanee, and sixteen at the Conference of 
Church Workers at St. Augustine's College, Raleigh, last summer. 
Programs in the branches have been greatly improved and en- 
thusiasm aroused in Religious Education. I'm sure we are striving 
harder than ever — and more successfully — toward the second ob- 
jective of our constitution: that of Christian Education. 

In that connection let me stress again the importance of keep- 
ing up — not with the Joneses — but with the activities of our 
Church. Please subscribe to, and then read, our Church publica- 
tions. For the next few months they will be full of plans for the 
General Convention and the Triennial Meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary to be held in Boston in September. Thrilling and in- 
spiring events will take place then, and the next best thing to 
being present is reading about them. So see that you and your 
members back home are informed, and therefore actively inter- 
ested, in our Church and all phases of its endeavors. The branch 
presidents can be of tremendous help in keeping the channel of 
information open, and in giving the pertinent content of our 
Church publications to their members. 

The third objective of our constitution is that of Christian So- 
cial Service. Mrs. Purser will tell you of that part of our work, 
but let me anticipate her report — and possibly steal some of her 
thunder — by telling you that more than one-third of the branches 
support from one to eight children at the Thompson Orphanage. 
'And when the appeal was made just a year ago for $400 to enable 
each June graduate at the Orphanage to leave the fold with $100 
in his pocket, you gave more than double that sum. 

Time forbids a mention of our many other departments. You 
will hear from each officer and committee chairman during the 
day. However, I do want you to know that the Diocesan Auxiliary 
was represented in Atlanta last November by Mrs. Matt Wall at 
the Southeastern Convocation of United Council of Churches of 
Christ in the U. S. A., and that many of you have participated 
locally in the ecumenical observance of World Fellowship Day, 
World Community Day and World Day of Prayer. 

It was my happy privilege to be one of your representatives to 
the Provincial Synod in Birmingham last October. During the year 
I have spoken at two district meetings and to several branches, 
and have attended a meeting of the Board of Managers of Thomp- 
son Orphanage. I was present at the Diocesan Convention in 
Greensboro last May, and at three meetings of the Diocesan Execu- 
tive Council, at each of which I made a report for the Auxiliary. 
I have met with the Diocesan Department of Christian Education, 
and that of Missions, and, of course, there have been many com- 
mittee meetings and numerous conferences with individuals in the 
Diocese. 

My message would not be complete without a recognition of the 
unfailing response and enthusiasm and invaluable aid I have re- 
ceived from my fellow officers — and, indeed, from all of you with 
whom I have come in contact. Your cheerful willingness to under- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 21 

take any task which is assigned to you, and your splendid co- 
operation with me, and with each other, have been an inspiration 
to me. 

Let us pledge ourselves anew to continue to strive for the three 
objectives of our Church as stated in our constitution: namely, 
Extension of the Kingdom, Religious Education and Christian So- 
cial Service. Let us go forward together in the work of our Lord 
and Master as we pray fervently that we do our part in "Sharing 
in Redemption."

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 



Appended to these brief paragraphs is a working outline, 
planned for new Secretaries of Christian Education. I should like 
to add a short message to those Secretaries. First, though she 
may have been told by the importunate Chairman of the Nominat- 
ing Committee that her new job would be "just planning the pro- 
gram" she will soon find out, if she is conscientious, that it is 
infinitely more than that. Once she is acquainted with the ma- 
terials for just that she will be be drawn into the planning of 
most of the other Departments to provide a really broad program. 
That is as it should be. Outsie her own Department such contri- 
butions might well be in suggestions of methods and techniques, 
rather than in content. Increasing knowledge of the resource 
material of National Council will give her a widening sense of the 
infinite possibilities of audio-visual education in all departments. 
Interdepartmental planning is essential to a well-rounded Woman's 
Auxiliary endeavor. 

In the second place, I am convinced that the new Secretary of 
Christian Education is often late in sensing the help she has in 
our Church's publications, particularly Churchways, for practical 
program ideas, and Forth for stimulus to the missionary interest. 
To miss these magazines would be almost as deplorable as to fail 
to work constantly for the parish-wide use of The Church's Teach- 
ing Series publications. 

In the third place, the new Secretary of Christian Education 
will find out early in her career that not only in National Council 
offering far and wide, a wealth of material, but it is sending 
travelling teams of skilled interpreters of that material to places 
where their help is asked. A Secretary who works for the com- 
ing of such teams to her parish and her Diocese is deepening the 
influence of her Department. 

These few points are less than a minimum for lack of space. 
Because there is such opportunity for service in the Department, 
and because its resources are so rich and varied I should like to 
venture the suggestion that wherever possible the Secretary of 
this Department might well be prevailed to serve for two years. 
There is much to learn that takes time. One's horizons tend to 
widen; greater possibilities develop; one's interest in the work 
grows infinitely. Christian Education, in the broadest sense, offers 
a Secretary the privilege of a stake in rousing Christian citizenry 
to what may be its last stand against the shabby materialism of 
a sorry world. Anything less than her best is not enough to bring 
to the job.

Retiring Secretary of Christian Education 



40 Seventieth Annual Report 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 1952-1953 

Below are the suggestions of the National Council for the year's 
program of the Woman's Auxiliary. Space prevents our quoting 
the names of all the books offered. Every Secretary of Christian 
Education should send to 281 Fourth Avenue, New York 10, New 
York, for the complete list of the publications of the Friendship 
Press for the Missions Study emphasis, and to 28 Havemeyer 
Place, Greenwich, Connecticut, for the list of Seabury Press pub- 
lications giving a comprehensive idea of the materials gotten out 
in the Church's Teaching Series. With these as a basis for plan- 
ning she can build her program with the needs and the capabili- 
ties of her branch in mind. 

1. Overseas Missions Theme: Liberia 
Africans on Safari — Leslie Sayre 
African Heritage— 'Emory Ross 

(Friendship Press listing gives you an idea of the contents of 
each of the above, as well as other suggestions.) 
Guide for Adults on Africa — Shannon 

2. Home Missions Theme: Home Missions and Human Rights 
These Rights We Hold— Fred Brownlee 

Accent on Liberty — Mabel Sheibley 
Guide for Adults — Ziegler 

3. Church's Teaching Series — one selection. 

At this point we hesitate to specify one certain book of this 
series, feeling that there is a value to each of them, and that the 
selection should be made with the list of all the publications be- 
fore the planning committee. 

4. The Department of Christian Social Relations asks the co- 
operation of our Department in having at least one program 
based on the division of the book, called "Parishioners Are People" 
that is called, They Were Their Neighbors. (If you did this book 
last year you might stress some of the several thought-provoking 
points that the above chapter points out.) 

5. Your attention is called to the recent printing by the Friend- 
ship Press of two single programs, calculated to fill a need that 
occasionally arises. One of these, Consider Church Unity, speaks 
for itself: the other, Backyard Neighbors, deals with phases of 
the work of the Home Department. 

Maps and other audio-visual material will be developed as 
time goes and the need arises. They are well-nigh indispensable 
additions.

44 Seventieth Annual Report 



CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Serving as your Christian Social Relations secretary is a preci- 
ous experience. I am receiving far more than I could possibly 
give in return, however hard I try. Thank you for one of the 
happiest, most wonderful years of my life. 

Christian Social Relations express a love for God and our fel- 
lowmen through action reflecting a sensitive understanding of 
His will. What they include seems to be the least understood 
part of auxiliary work. Our Church provides a wealth of material 
to guide us to a better understanding. Few secretaries draw on 
it. I have prayed for the wisdom and opportunity to interpret 
it to them. 

Christian Social Relations secretaries should make a special 
effort to go to the Woman's Auxiliary conference at Vade Mecum 
and to Kanuga. Last summer the Christian Social Relations 
course at Kanuga was such fundamental help and so thrilling 
that in the fall it was shared with district and branch secretaries 
meeting together. I expect to call a similar meeting this fall. 
With my fall letter to branch and district secretaries went an 
outline of program suggestions and a list of reading material. 
January letters included resolutions passed at the Provincial meet- 
ing. I have spoken at six auxiliary meetings, one district meeting 
and two district work-shops. 

Probably our best work has been in social service, including 
volunteer work, Church institutions and overseas relief. Our 
hands have reached out to Japan, Korea, Jerusalem, Brazil, Alaska 
and Greece. We have contributed through Church World Service, 
ARK, Care, local, and other agencies. Money and supplies were 
given for use in the Ministry to the Migrants, and from one 
branch, funds for a portable altar. There is general participa- 
tion in social worship, and we are cooperating with local Councils 
of Church Women. An important part of their program, some 
of it under the heading of Christian World Relations, falls in 
the field of Christian Social Relations. Through Christian Fellow- 
ship we minister to God's lonely, ill and troubled children, who- 
ever and wherever they may be. Visits were made to prisons and 
hospitals. One branch held prayer meetings among the shut-ins. 
Another carried out a plan of the Diocesan Armed Services Com- 
mittee, extending fellowship to service men from the parish by 
sending them the service cross and prayer book, a monthly parish 
letter, and having special prayers and a roll call of remembrance 
at services. 

Efforts to solve social problems by action as an auxiliary alone 
or in cooperation with other groups constitute social action, one 
of our weak spots, but here are interesting examples. Several 
branches lent parish facilities for community activities and wed- 
dings. By raising funds, others helped establish and maintain 
Bible teaching in the schools. One branch reports great progress 
in efforts to obtain a suitable school building. Whatever action 
you begin, be sure to see it through and keep an eye on it after- 
wards. Some auxiliaries had programs on social legislation. 
Three took action protesting the proposed appointment of an am- 
bassador to the Vatican and so informed the President, our Sen- 
ators and Congressmen. One branch was instrumental in having 
a Town Meeting on universal military training. 

There were many auxiliary programs on or related to Christ- 
ian Social Relations and some social study groups. Let's have 



The Woman's Auxiliary 45 

more of them with programs that lead into action, the real objec- 
tive of Christian Social Relations. Quoting from one of my fav- 
orite magazines, The Church Woman, "Study without action is 
futile; action without study is fatal." 

As far as I know, we almost completely failed to respond to 
"The Christian Woman's Action Program for World Peace," a 
social action project considered most important by our National 
Church and Province. As individuals and auxiliaries, please adopt 
this step-child and give it your attention in the coming year. For 
individual reading on this subject and for discussion in small 
groups, use, "Christian Foundations for Lasting Peace" available 
from "National." None of us are exempt from highway hazards, 
neither lazy-passenger, driver, nor pedestrian. Another social 
action project will be for branches to investigate the problem of 
highway safety in North Carolina, particularly the high accident 
rate between the ages of eighteen and twenty-four, and what 
is being done about it, to look for the answer and to take action 
that will help to correct this situation that claimed 1,071 lives 
in this state last year, injured 15,123 and affected the lives of so 
many others. In support of a resolution adopted at the meeting 
of our Province, it is hoped that joining with all denominations 
we will unite with authorities in preparation for civil defense. 
Last, but not least, together with minority groups we will dedicate 
ourselves to the application of Christian principles in arriving 
at a mutual understanding and cooperation. 

We will continue to help the North Carolina Council of 
Churches' Ministry to the Migrants. My fall letter will carry de- 
tailed directions about materials and clothing needed for the 
Refugee Work-rooms in the Anglican diocese of Jerusalem. By 
sending gifts of money for overseas relief through the Presiding 
Bishop's Fund for World Relief, we will make sure of participat- 
ing in projects approved by the World Council of Churches. 

This year our National Council's Christian Social Relations De- 
partment is conducting a nation-wide survey to use as the basis 
for long-range planning and "to discover how all of us together 
may stimulate our social study and community action in the Na- 
tional Church, in the dioceses and in the parishes." Feeling sure 
of your support, I had asked that our Woman's Auxiliary be 
given the opportunity for closer cooperation with the Diocesan 
Executive Council's Christian Social Relations Department and 
when its chairman was called to another state, as your secretary 
I was drafted to carry on the survey here. In one of the parishes 
selected for it there is no minister and an auxiliary member has 
assumed survey responsibility. 

There has been self-analysis at the diocesan level. To be pre- 
pared to forge ahead with plans coming out of Triennial, each 
branch and district should analyze its Christian Social Relations 
set-up and program. Both should have a well-functioning Christ- 
ian Social Relations committee that studies, makes and sets plans 
in motion and serves as a resource. I firmly believe that if every 
secretary, committee member and auxiliary president would care- 
fully read National's guide-book "When You're Chairman of 
Social Relations" it would pay big dividends. Only by knowing 
our weakness as well as our strength can we truly measure the 
adequacy of our stewardship and keep from leaving undone those 
things which we ought to have done in that part of the Master's 
work with which we are entrusted.

At one time a Diocesan project, it is now a member agency 
of the Raleigh Community Chest, but is still remembered by 
the Auxiliary in a small way each year. 

OUTSIDE THE DIOCESE 

1. One new mission project each year. This assignment is 
made by the National Department and is purposely small be- 
cause of our large Diocesan obligations. 

2. $35 yearly, to the National Supply Secretary's Gift Fund, 
for Christmas gift checks to a small group of retired min- 
isters and widows of ministers who receive little or no pen- 
sions, and a group of underpaid Indian lay readers in South 
Dakota.

OBJECTIVES 

A. To have each Branch support this phase of the Auxiliary Pro- 
gram, by giving generously to the Supply Fund, and by aid- 
ing each Branch Secretary in carrying out the Supply Work. 

B. To have each Branch President answer carefully the questions 
about Supply, on her annual report — especially the one con- 
cerning sewing. 

C. To have each Branch Supply Secretary: 

1. Know the work of her department and make it known to 
her Branch members. 

2. Have at least one large ingathering of used clothes for 
Thompson Orphanage each year and urge members to send 
clothing throughout the year. 

3. If asked to send used colthing to Tuttle Community Cen- 
ter to advise her Diocesan Supply Secretary if unable to 
to do, as only assigned Branches are expected to send 
clothing there. 

4. Make proper reports on all sewing and used clothing sent, 
immediately after it is shipped. 

5. Cooperate with other departments, such as Christian Socal 
Relations, when practical, also reporting such. 

6. Assume the responsibility of being active Supply Sec- 

retary. 

D. To have each District Supply Secretary know the work of the 
Department and aid the Diocesan Secretary in carrying out 
her work. 

E. To have the Diocesan Supply Secretary coordinate the work, 
make all purchases, being careful to study both quality and 
cost, and seek to fulfill the duties of her office, to Branch, Dis- 
trict,. Diocesan and National Supply Departments. 

Each year through growing cooperation we come nearer to 
meeting our objectives. Though you may not realize it, this very 
important work touches each Auxiliary member in one way or 
another — through gifts of time and talent, gifts of clothing or 
gifts of money. We want you to understand this very tangible 
work and become even more interested in it. 

I am deeply grateful for the warm welcome accorded me by 
our President, Mrs. Lucas, and the entire Diocesan Board; for 
the wise counselling and complete records turned over to me by 



The Woman's Auxiliary 51 

Mrs. Labouissee; for the prompt receipt of Supply Funds from 
Mrs. Armstrong as they were received from the Branches; for 
the indispensable aid of the District Supply Secretaries in dis- 
tributing- sewing materials to the Branches; for the able support 
and fine reports of the Branch Supply Secretaries; and for the 
share each Auxiliary member has had in bringing comfort to the 
hundreds of men, women and children who are served by our 
Supply program. This has indeed been a good year.

PERSONNEL 

The Department of Personnel is concerned with recruiting, train- 
ing, placing and keeping in touch with the women workers in our 
church today. There is a crying need for many more trained 
women than are available for Directors of Religious Education, 
College Workers, Parish Secretaries, Social Workers, Teachers 
and Nurses. 

The objectives of the Personnel Department are: 

1. To interest young women in seeking a career in the church. 

2. To assist them in securing the necessary training, providing 
scholarships when necessary. 

3. To see that the trained workers are placed in suitable jobs. 

4. To keep in touch with the women workers in the field at home 
and abroad. 

Our emphasis now is being placed on the first cf these objec- 
tives. The methods which Personnel Secretaries may use in trying 
to interest young women in becoming trained workers for the 
church are: By advertising the needs of the church so that young 
and old will know of the challenging opportunities awaiting young- 
women who would like to make the service of God their life work. 
This is best accomplished through programs in the Auxiliary and 
the Y. P. S. L. and through personal contact with outstanding 
young people. Each Parish Secretary must be sure that the young 
people in her parish are aware of the professions open to them in 
church service. 

The following leaflets will be of help to all parish secretaries of 
Personnel:* 

1. Tell us about Personnel, (free) 

2. Consider the Church, (free) 

3. What shall I do with my life, by Angus Dun. 0.03. 

4. Hints on Recruiting. 0.05. 

5. When you're Personnel Chairman. 0.05. 

6. The Church : a profession for women. 0.50. 

Last year in our combined training schools — St. Mary's House, 
Philadelphia, St. Margaret's House, Berkeley, California and 
Windham House, New York City there were only forty-seven stu- 
dents enrolled. This is a pitifully small number for the whole 
United States and cannot possibly take care of all our needs. 

It is hoped that each member of the Womans' Auxiliary will 
feel an individual responsibility in creating an interest in this

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

1. The objectives of the United Thank Offering are to reach 
all women of the Episcopal Church in order to give them the 
privilege of presenting their gifts and prayers from thankful 
hearts. These are "gifts" with a future. 

2. The methods of sharing this "perfect way of giving" are 
through personal contacts, better planned programs, a constant 
flow of material ; plus a more conscientious use of these materials 
by local Custodians. 

3. The sources of material for this Diocese are: "The Living 
Church," "The Carolina Churchman," "Forth," "Churchways," 
your Diocesan Custodian, Audio Visual Department and the Book 
Store, 281 Fourth Ave., New York, N. Y. Then too, your United 
Thank Offering Workshops at District Meetings and the Woman's 
Auxiliary Conference at Vade Mecum on the 9th of June. 

4. I have made visits and talks to eight (8) branches of the 
Auxiliary in this Diocese. 

I have conducted two Workshops. Attended the Woman's Aux- 
iliary Conference at Vade Mecum and the Regional Conference at 
Birmingham, Ala. At this conference, I attended the Workshop 
conducted by Miss Beardsley, our Associate Secretary of the 
United Thank Offering from National Headquarters. 

Seventy-three packets of materials and Blue Boxes have been 
mailed out to various Branches, upon request. Two letters have 
been sent to each Custodian in the Diocese and one article in the 
February issue of the Carolina Churchman. 

I know the splendid financial growth of our United Thank 
Offering, as listed below, is the result of our Local Custodians 
placing Blue Boxes in more hands, as well as providing the way 
for a clearer vision of the joy of giving through "thankfulness 
and prayer"; plus the untiring efforts of the District Custodians 
in gathering our offering. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Susan L. Steele 

Diocesan Custodian of

INTERRACIAL 

I am happy to report that the work of the Auxiliary in the 
Negro District shows continued growth in many fields of activity. 
The 1945 annual report showed only four branches with Youth 
Leaders. In 1951 eleven branches had workers, and our hope is, 
that all branches will fall in line in this important phase of work 
before another year ends. 

Signs of growth are also shown in the United Thank Offering 
with thirteen branches increasing their offering and eight branches 
more than doubling the annual amount turned in since 1945. 

Our chief desire is to have every branch take part in all phases 
of the work of the auxiliary. This we feel will be done if we re- 
double our efforts, and give full support to our Field Worker who 
is so anxious to have us make full use of our capabilities. 

"We must realize that leaders are not those with extraordinary 
talents; but just ordinary folk with an extraordinary sense of their 
duty to God and to their fellow man." 

Annie Black 
Interracial Chairman 



DIOCESAN FIELD WORKER 

The purpose of this work in the field is to keep the women, 
especially, informed and inspired, through constantly stressing 
what the five (5) objectives of the Woman's Auxiliary mean to 
Christian women who are trying to help extend the kingdom of 
God into the hearts and lives of all people throughout the world. 

The methods used must, of necessity, be those that will first 
of all meet the needs of the individual groups. We try to do this 
through week-end visits. The reasons for these are as follows: 
1st, Your field-worker finds, on account of local conditions, the 
week-end visits are far more profitable . . . giving better oppor- 
tunities for branch meetings, conferences, to atend church and 
church schools, seeing more young people and to visit those who 
are ill or are in other ways hindered from attending church 
activities. 

During visits I help in every way possible, in program-mak- 
ings, suggest and plan special meetings, such as Woman's Day 
and World-Prayer Day programs, Inter-cessory Days, Youth 
Sundays, Bazaars, etc. (I am very often called upon to speak to 
the congregations and church schools.) 

We stress full participation, as far as possible, in all phases 
of the Church's program . . . that we put forth every effort to 
interest every woman to learn to "put first things first" (a Jee- 
son all need to learn more thoroughly) and to enjoy the rare 
privilege of being permitted to work in the Master's vineyard. To 
keep abreast of the times in the church life by study: to read 
Forth, Church-Ways, the North Carolina Churchman, and other 
church and inter-denominational literature. 

To make every effort to attend St. Augustine's Conference, our 
District and Annual meetings ... to foster and visit Camp De- 
Laney. 

Number of visits ... I have visited seventeen (17) of the eigh- 
teen (18) congregations on an average of twice a year (find it 
important to visit some places more often.) We have meetings 



56 Seventieth Annual Report 



with the women and young people. Conferences often with the 
clergy, the branch and district officers (Diocesan, when possible). 

I gain much help and inspiration from regular attendance at 
the meetings of the Department of Christian Education. 

During vacation periods it was a rich privilege to visit Wind- 
ham House and to take part in a Retreat and to share in the 
"W. H. Alumni" and the "Professional Church Women's" organ- 
izations. Your field-worker has been graciously accepted as a 
member of these organiaztions. I also took advantage of visit- 
ing "281" examining "What's New" in Church Literature and 

selecting some needed for our work. Have visited one (1) Prison 
Camp in Edgecombe County with the rector and his wife at St. 
Luke's, Tarboro. 

Results ... It is not easy, all must agree, to estimate the re- 
sults of such work as ours nor the great good we always pray 
will come of our efforts. 

In this World-Wide organization, The Woman's Auxiliary, oppor- 
tunities are so numerous, one often trembles lest some thing has 
been overlooked — but we do get a great satisfaction, nevertheless, 
when one is assured of the appreciation and can see and feel the 
"Yearnings" when you are told "We are so glad you have come 
and you have helped us so much!" 

May all who read this report pray with us that all of the 
women in our Diocese will unite more and more in this great 
work and can join with the poet who says: 

"Go labor on! Spend and be spent 
Thy joy to do the Father's will 
It is the way the Master went 
Should not the servant tread it still?" 

Constance S. Young 
Diocesan Field Worker 



The Woman's Auxiliary 57 

YOUTH WORK 

There have been times when I have felt discouraged about our 
work for the Youth of this Diocese, and have wondered if we 
were as conscientious in this phase of our work as we were in 
some of the others. I believe that most branch secretaries share 
the feeling of inadequacy with me — we just don't seem able to 
accomplish the things that we know need to be done, and we often 
don't know how to go about it. 

But, thank goodness for two facts. We need never feel discour- 
aged about our young people themselves, nor need we ever for one 
moment think that they are inadequate. Youth, among many 
other things, is demanding, and while they may not be able to 
analyze their needs, they are acutely conscious of them; and if 
we of the Church give them half a chance to express themselves 
they will let us know what they feel that they need. It is up to 
us to supply these needs under Church guidance. 

From the reports which I receive I am happy to report that 
practically every branch has some phase of Youth Work — YPSL, 
Altar Guilds, Acolyte Guilds, Boy and Girl Scouting — and I have 
noticed a growth in these activities in the past two years. These 
activities are splendid and I wish that I thought that I had had 
even a small part in shaping them, through contact with the 
branch secretaries and through the workshops which we have had 
at Vade Mecum for the past two years, but again I believe that 
the increase in Youth Work in our diocese is due to the young 
people themselves being eager and ready for the fellowship of 
the Church. 

This brings ' me to the most important phase of Youth Work, 
and the one in which every parishoner can participate, and that 
is, and I cannot say it too often — letting our young people know 
that we love them; that we want them to share every blessing and 
benefit which the Church can give — work and fellowship, worship 
and sacraments, and we can only let them know this by welcoming 
them gladly in all our activities — not impatiently when they make 
mistakes — not critically when their way isn't our way; but as 
beloved children of God who look to us for guidance, but who 
above everything else want our loving interest. Won't each of 
you consider herself a "Youth Work Secretary" and give each 
young person in your parish a warm smile of greeting, a friendly 
word, and a place in your plans and projects? I firmly believe 
that you will see a change in the youth of your parish if you will 
just show them you love them. 

The following list of "Duties of Youth Work Secretaries' is 
copied from the Youth Work Handbook: 

1. Keep your Auxiliary informed of the activities and needs of 
the Youth. 

2. Keep your Parish informed of the needs and activities of the 
Youth. 

3. Cooperate with the Rector, Sunday School, and other organi- 
zations in procuring adult leadership. 

4. Study the needs of the youth in your parish and try to in- 
terest the parish in providing the means to fill them. 

5. Subscribe to Youth Leaders Mailing List — 281 Fourth Ave., 
New York 10, N. Y., $1.00. 

6. Urge observance of special communions for youth, as desig- 
nated by the National Council. 



58 Seventieth Annual Report 

7. Interest your parish and the Auxiliary in providing scholar- 
ships for the Youth Conference, Y.P.S.L. Convention, and to 
the camps at Vade Mecum and Camp Delaney. 

8. The Secretary is not necessarily required to act in the ca- 
pacity of advisor or leader to the Youth groups, unless she 
has the talent, and is requested by the Rector or organization

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club is a national organization of the 
Episcopal Church to supply both religious and secular magazines, 
books, new Christmas and Easter cards, games and pictures, etc., 
to the church's missionaries, clergy, missions, schools and individ- 
ual lay people at home and abroad. 

This is done by donations of money, magazine subscriptions, and 
by offering to re-mail magazines that you have finished reading. 

I hope all of you are familiar with the Walter E. Peck Co. of 
Gallsburg, Illinois. If you aren't, please make it a point to know 
them right away. It is the magazine agency that gives us a dis- 
count and enables us to make a small amount of money on each 
subscription. The subscription does not have to have a church con- 
nection to get the discount. If you haven't a Walter E. Peck 
booklet, please write for one now. If you should want to write 
to National Council for quicker action concerning placement of 
magazines, the address is: Miss Adeline Sogan, C. P. C, 120 E. 
22nd St., New York 10, N. Y. Please report to me everything 
you do or our diocese will get no credit. 

I am more than pleased with the progress we have made since 
last year and I want to thank each secretary for the increasing 
interest that has been shown throughout the diocese. 

I submit the following report with great pleasure.

MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

I have the privilege of submitting my second report as Mis- 
sionary Correspondent of the Diocese of North Carolina. I wish 
to express a keen sense of appreciation and gratification that we 
as Missionary Correspondents of the various parishes and dis- 
tricts have manifested a true Missionary spirit. 

We have studied the church's program for Missionary service 
in order that we know the needs and activities of our representa- 
tives in the foreign and home mission fields. We must be in contact 
with them to prove ourselves adequate to the weight of our 
spiritual responsibility and obligations. If we accept the challenge 
and meet the new imperative of this cx*ucial time, God will give us 
divine guidance and He will sustain and strengthen us to render 
our best service in this religious work of helping to make this a 
Christian World. 

Our great opportunity is the growing church in the mission 
fields where we can encourage true Christian fellowship. There- 
fore, we should purge ourselves of prejudices and unchristian 
attitudes and learn to have a world vision. We must strive to be 
realistic of our opportunities to learn of the church's activities 
in world affairs. The new impulse is being felt as a dominant 
force in the religious and political world. It is touching with divine 
beneficence the matter of fact material world and has brought 
the love of God and all other consolations of religions down from 
the pulsing everyday world upwards towards the light. The time 
has passed when Christian women can continue to be individualists 
in a narrow parochial and provincial minded way. 

We must begin to think on a national and universal scale in 
terms of God's slowly evolving world-wide humanity.

Missionary Correspondent 

SUGGESTIONS FOR MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENTS 

1. Study purple book, know your Church, the Church's program 
and your officers. 

2. Know the missionaries that are assigned to your district. 

A. Pray for them. 

B. Remember them with cards and letters. 

3. Take every opportunity to acquaint your parish correspondents 
with their missionaries. 

A. Try to get as many programs in as you can. 

B. Remind your rector to have mission prayers at corporate 
communions. 

C. Try to get Forth in each home. 

D. Each correspondent should have "The Calendar of Prayer 
for Missions." This little book will keep us well informed 
on the lives and works of our missionaries. The more we 
know about these saints of God and messengers of the word 
of God, the more we are going to help them with their 
wonderful work.

REPORT OF THE REPRESENTATIVE ON THE STATE 
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

Objectives — The State Legislative Council is composed of mem- 
bers of 16 State organizations, representing a total membership 
of 105,000. Its purpose is to propose and support better social 
legislation in North Carolina. The Woman's Auxiliary of the 
Diocese of North Carolina is one of only three church groups 
represented. 

Methods — The Council meets in Raleigh four times a year to 
select items for study which have been proposed by member organ- 
izations, so that in legislative years a program of action may be 
presented to the General Assembly in the form of actual bills. 
No item is placed on the agenda without careful study by technical 
experts, and no final program is adopted without unanimous 
consent by each member organization. 

Weakness of Program — While the State Legislative Council is 
far from perfect, it is a step in the direction of better legislation. 
Due to the size of the Council, and infrequency of meeting, it has 
been impossible to have information available for study prior to 
our annual meeting. We should be informed on both sides of each 
question before any vote is taken. Some improvement will be 
made next year since Legislative Council Programs may be 
adopted in December, which will allow some time for advance 
study by member groups before voting. 

Recommendations— Due to the increased importance of the 
need for Christian leaderships at all levels of government, begin- 
ning with the precinct, it is our suggestion that a Committee be 
appointed to study the whole field of legislation and the respon- 
sibility of the Woman's Auxiliary to it. Consideration should be 
given to : Continued membership in Legislative Council, b. Ways 
of channeling information to members, with consideration of ap- 
pointment of Legislative Chairman in each branch of Auxiliary, 
c. Fields of legislative activity. Citizen responsibility, emphasiz- 
ing the importance of the vote. (In last national election nearly 
40 million did not vote.) Our policy towards legislation. There is 
a definite place for church women in the broad areas of juvenile 
delinquency, highway safety, and citizen responsibility and par- 
ticipation in government. 

Tentative Program for 1953 — Submitted herewith are items 
selected by the State Legislative Council, for your vote. Item 6 
has already been rejected by one organization, and will therefore 
not appear on the final program. All items were listed in the 
March issue of the N. C. Churchman, and have been submitted to 
each delegate, with reasons for selection. 

1. Provide at State expense for employment of attendance 
workers with State supervision for improving school attendance 
for the enforcement of compulsory school attendance law. 

2. Provide for minimum wage standards. 

3. Provide for the protection of children without natural guar- 
dians through clarification of legal procedures relating to personal 
guardianship of a minor. 

4. Increase the jurisdiction of the juvenile court so .as to in- 
clude children 16 years of age. 

5. Provide for minimum standards of all new housing. 

6. Forbid the use of pari-mutual machines or other such gam- 
bling devices in connection with the operation of dog tracks and 
horse race tracks in any section of the State. 

Mrs. John T. Richardson, Chairman of 
Legislative Committee and Representative 
on the North Carolina Legislative Council. 



64 Seventieth Annual Report 



RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
ANNUAL MEETING 

Church of the Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, April 23-24 

I. Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary be reminded to have 
a spirit of friendliness in our Churches, calling on newcomers, 
visiting the sick, and speaking to all who worship with us — 
whether they are close friends or not. 

That we pray earnestly that our Heavenly Father will guide 
our country in the presidential election this fall, that our beloved 
land may be led by Christian men. 

That we pray that world peace may be a reality and our loved 
sons and relatives may receive daily the Holy Spirit to comfort 
and guide them. 

II. Whejeas, The Rev. Edwin B. Jeffress, Jr., has only recently 
accepted the position of Director of Christian Education in the 
Diocese of North Carolina and director of Camp Vade Mecum, 
Be It Resolved that the gains thereby secured be brought before 
the people of the Diocese. 

III. Whereas, Our retiring president, Mrs. E. F. Lucas, having 
been elected vice-president of the North Carolina Council of 
Church Women; and Mrs. E. G. Peoples, member of the Executive 
Board of the North Carolina Council of Church Women; and the 
Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, member of the Executive Committee of 
the North Carolina Council of Churches; and the Rt. Rev. Rich- 
ard H. Baker, vice-president of the North Carolina Council of 
Churches; and the Rt. Rev. J. I. Blair Larned, representative of 
the Episcopal Church of the World Council of Churches; and the 
Rev. Morton R. Kurtz, Executive Secretary of the North Carolina 
Council of Churches; and inasmuch as the interchurch movement 
is gaining in world force expressing itself on local, state and na- 
tional levels, 

Be It Resolved that the Women of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina take their part of the responsibility of this interchurch move- 
ment on the local level. 

IV. Whereas, The Women's Auxiliary to the National Council 
in the Diocese of North Carolina recognizes the public has been 
slow in answering the call to Civil Defense, and 

Whereas, Many church women have been previously trained 
for work in emergencies, now, therefore 

Be It Resolved that it is the sense of this Annual Meeting that 
the Episcopal Churches join where practicable in the Civil De- 
fense Program. 

V. Whereas, The Christian Woman's Action Program for 
World Peace was adopted by the Department of United Church 
Women of the National Council of Churches and by the Women 
of the Province of Sewanee in 1951 meeting, and has been urged 
for study and action by the National Staff of the Woman's Auxi- 
liary of the Protestant Episcopal Church; therefore 

Be It Resolved that the women of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina dedicate their influence in home, church, community, business 
and government to build lasting peace and adopt this program. 
We believe that we should strengthen and use our spiritual re- 
sources; therefore, we shall pray that we may be used for peace. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 65 

We believe that "This Nation under God" can be a Christian 
Democracy; therefore, we will live democracy in our home town 
every day. 

We believe that, next to the churches, today's best instrument 
for peace is the United Nations; therefore, we will know and 
support it. 

We believe that we must identify ourselves with the needs, the 
sufferings, the longings of the people of the world; therefore, we 
will discipline ourselves to share our abundance of spiritual and 
material resources. 

We believe we must understand the issues in the struggle for 
peace; therefore, we will study and discuss with our family and 
neighbors the issues of the peace.
